- Used to prevent fasteners from loosening unintentionally
- Split and bent to create a spring-like effect
- Add extra pressure to fastener assembly resulting in higher resistance to rotation
Aluminum split ring washers are corrosion resistant, lightweight, and non-magnetic. Our aluminum washers are made of 2024-T4 Aluminum Alloy which is a high strength aluminum alloy with good fatigue resistance and strength-to-weight ratio. Note that, while aluminum 2024-T4 is resistant to atmospheric corrosion, it is not as corrosive resistant as stainless steel and is ill suited for marine enviroments.
Important: We recommend not mixing metals; aluminum fasteners should be used with aluminum fasteners. For more information, please read our article on the subject HERE.
