Flat Washers Grade 8
Hardened Grade 8 Steel Flat Washers with a Yellow Zinc Plated Finish
A flat washer is a round outer diameter thin plate with a center hole (inner diameter) punched to the size of the bolt or screw size. Flat washers are normally used to distribute loads of threaded bolts, screws and nuts evenly as the fastener is tightened. Flat Washers are used in conjunction with bolts or screws to spread force the load of the fastening preventing pull-through of the fastener head. Additionally, Flat Washers may be used to provide ease of movement for spinning parts, or when the hole holding the fastener assembly is larger than the finishing nut.
Flat Washers in this selection are made of through hardened Grade 8 steel with a yellow zinc plating.
