Stainless Steel Washer Grade Options
Stainless steel flat washers are available in several materials to match your exclusive application requirements. Whether it’s bulk standard or metric flat washers, there is an option that meets or exceeds your expectations. Small and large stainless steel flat washer material options include:
18.8 Stainless Steel
18.8 stainless steel flat washers are manufactured with a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel for increased tensile strength and corrosion resistance over 400 Series stainless steel materials. Additionally, 18.8 grade stainless steel carriage bolts resist the adverse effects of various acids and chemicals.
316 Stainless Steel
Flat washers manufactured from 316 stainless steel contain 18% chromium, 8% nickel, and 2-3% molybdenum. Alloy 316/316L stainless steel flat washers provide excellent elevated temperature tensile and stress rupture strengths, as well as outstanding weldability.
Bulk metric sizes are available on all small and large stainless steel flat washers!
Stainless Steel Flat Washer Advantages

· Increased corrosion resistance
· Strong holding power
· Enhanced aesthetics
· 100% recyclable

Differentiating 18.8 & 316 Grade Stainless Steel Washers
There are several differences between the various grades of stainless steel washers. The end application will often dictate which type of stainless steel is best for your project needs. Both 18.8 and 316/316L grade stainless steel washers provide good corrosion resistance; however, 18.8 will corrode quicker than 316 when exposed to salt and saltwater environments. Conversely, 18.8 stainless is non-magnetic and can be bent and molded without negatively impacting strength and durability.
