Why you should make Martin’s Rubber your rubber washer manufacturer of choice

Martin’s Rubber Company manufactures a wide array of rubber washers. Choose from an extensive range of materials, sizes and shapes of custom and standard bulk order rubber washers. In this blog, we outline exactly why you should make us your rubber washer manufacturer of choice.

Rubber washers act as a simple gasket around a stud, shaft or bolt, whereby varying degrees of tolerance can be achieved. It is important to consider the amount of clamping force and compression required to achieve an effective seal, without over-stressing the material.

Consideration also needs to be given to the environment in which the rubber washer will be operating and therefore the most suitable material. Rubber washers from Martin’s Rubber come in a variety of different materials and sizes, which can either be bought in bulk from stock or manufactured to order.

Rubber washer materials

Martin’s Rubber can offer a wide range of rubber washer materials, available in a variety of high grade rubber sheeting materials. From traditional solid natural rubber grades, through to high specification synthetic rubbers (such as Viton® and silicone), military specifications, and other high performance materials manufactured to specifications including BS1154, BS2751 and BS2752.

Custom or standard rubber washers

Martin’s Rubber Company can supply custom rubber washers or larger quantities of off-the-shelf, (standard rubber washers) in bulk, all of which we manufacture in-house, across many different sizes and thicknesses.
