  1. Function: The primary function of a washer is to distribute the load of a fastener over a larger surface area, thereby reducing the risk of damage to the surface being fastened and providing additional support. It helps to prevent loosening, increase stability, and improve the integrity of the connection.
  2. Design: Washers are typically flat, disk-shaped components with a central hole that matches the diameter of the fastener. They are available in various sizes and thicknesses to accommodate different fastener types and applications. Some washers may also have special features such as serrations or flanges to provide additional grip or locking capabilities.
  3. Material: Washers are commonly made from metal (such as steel, stainless steel, or aluminum) or plastic (such as nylon). The choice of material depends on factors such as the application requirements, environmental conditions, and desired level of corrosion resistance.
  4. Installation: To install a washer, it is placed between the head of the fastener (such as a screw or bolt) and the surface being fastened, or between the nut and the surface. The washer acts as a protective barrier, evenly distributing the load and reducing the risk of damage to the surface.
  5. Applications: Washers are used in a wide range of applications across various industries, including construction, automotive, manufacturing, and electronics. They are commonly found in assemblies where secure fastening is required, such as machinery, equipment, vehicles, and structural components.
