A silicone washer is a type of flat washer made of silicone rubber material. Silicone is a synthetic elastomer that is resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, and UV radiation. Silicone washers are commonly used in applications that require a high level of sealing, such as in plumbing, automotive, and electrical systems.
Silicone washers are designed to create a tight seal between two surfaces, such as between a nut and bolt or between a hose and a fitting. They are often used in applications where traditional rubber or plastic washers may degrade due to exposure to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, or sunlight. Silicone washers are also ideal for applications where a high level of flexibility is required, as they can conform to irregular surfaces and provide a reliable seal.
