Applications for vulcanised fibre washers

Vulcanised fibre washers play a crucial part in sealing and spacing throughout a multitude of different industrial sectors. When you need a product to seal against water leakage or ingress, then vulcanised fibre must be considered.

Red vulcanised fibre washers are generally used within the plumbing trade where a seal to prevent leakage is required. Vulcanised fibre washers purpose is to absorb the fluid they come in contact with and swell slightly to fill the joint or gap within the pipe of flange.

Our grades of vulcanised fibre are dependent upon your choice of application, so please make us aware of any fluids the washer may come in contact with prior to ordering. Black vulcanised fibre washers are normally used for spacing or behind screws where they become invisible to the naked eye.

RH Nuttall is one of a handful of manufacturing companies left within the UK that can produce the size you actually require for your design. Moreover, our prices and lead times are always kept to a minimum, and we offer fantastic savings for bulk orders over any other stockist online.

Thicknesses of our vulcanised fibre washers can be from 0.4mm, 0.8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm and right up to 3mm, but this normally depends on our stock of base material at any given time, as well as the choice of vulcanised fibre you require your washers to be made from.

If you have a certain application that doesn’t lend itself to a standard size of vulcanised fibre washer, then why not try enquiring today for the exact size you require.

We also offer fibre washers in a cheaper grade of vulcanised fibre too. This is normally provided where a spacer is required and no fluids are apparent.

These more cost effective washers are mainly used within the glazing or knife making trade. Our range of “synthetic fibre washers” provides a perfect choice of washer when separation of parts is required. Vulcanised fibre washers are non-compressible, making them very versatile in their use.
