The 405 stainless Steel Washer is a quality material made from chromium-nickel iron alloy. It comprises 12 percent chromium, iron, carbon, and several other trace elements such as silicon, manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur. Depending on the purpose of the washer, small amounts of further details, such as molybdenum, can be added to increase corrosion resistance and harden the washer. Its composition makes it both durable and resistant to corrosion due to its high chromium content, which allows it to form a protective layer on its surface known as the passive layer. This layer helps protect SS 405 Washer against rust by blocking oxygen molecules in the environment. As a result, Stainless Steel 405 Washer is often used for outdoor areas with higher moisture levels or exposure to salt water or chemicals.
Stainless steel 405 washers are essential in many industrial settings, as they have superior properties over other forms of metal. It boasts fantastic resistance to rust and oxidation due to its high chromium content, making them perfect for various marine-based applications and long-term use in humid environments. Its low magnetism and strong magnetic permeability also make it ideal for installing electrical components around high magnetic fields, such as motors and optical instruments. Additionally, its excellent formability ensures that these washers can be used with heavy gauge pipes in solid pressure systems or tapered or curved surfaces without risk of deformation or fatigue.
