Properties Of Plastic Washers

Plastic washers are used in a broad range of applications due to the wide range of properties exhibited by plastic compounds.  Overall, plastics are durable materials with a wide range of temperature tolerances.  Most plastic compounds show resistance to corrosive materials such as fuel and oil and are low-friction.  As a result, they are long-wearing and do not corrode or deteriorate.  They can be manufactured to be semi-rigid or rigid.  There are two main types of plastics – thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers.   The most common plastics are polyethylene, which is a polymer, and nylon, a thermoplastic.  Accutrex also carries their own line of color-coded plastic shim stock, called Practi-shim®, where the color of the plastic indicates the thickness.
