The main role of flat washers is to increase the size of a screw’s bearing surface area and reduce the surface pressure applied on the fastened object. Looseness can result when the bearing surface sinks under the surface pressure, so using a flat washer to reduce the surface pressure is very effective.Hot-dip galvanizing offers durable, long-lasting corrosion protection to fasteners used in a variety of tough applications, including marine, oil and gas, construction, and infrastructure.nLarger connections are most commonly hot- dip galvanized. Additionally, hot-dip galvanized fasteners are suitable for use in contact with treated wood.nThe hot-dip galvanizing process is relatively cheap, and the resulting product is very durable and versatile. Hot-dipped galvanized fasteners are most often used in applications that will be exposed to the elements as it is highly corrosion-resistant.n

Flat washers are used to increase the bearing surface of a nut or fastener's head thus spreading the clamping force over a larger area. They can be useful when working with soft materials and oversized or irregular shaped holes. Washer size refers to its nominal hole size and is based on screw size.
