Steel: High-Carbon Steel Commercial - 1074-1095 per ASTM-A684.
Precision engineered curved washers are available from Ondrives in many stock sizes. These washers are made of finely tempered spring steel with some sizes being made of stainless steel. Supplied deburred and have had all set removed during manufacture. Curved washers exert relatively light thrust loads and are often used to absorb axial end play. The rate is approximately linear between 20% and 80% of available deflection.
Finish: Standard finish for high carbon steel is plain finish. Stainless steel is supplied in plain finish. On special order, high carbon steel washers may be mechanically plated, a process which substantially reduces the possibility of hydrogen embrittlement. Recommendations for specific applications will be made on request.
