WHAT IS A BONDED WASHER?

A metal washer bonded to rubber, bonded washers (aka Dowty washers) are used to prevent leakage of media through fasteners of hydraulic fittings, pipe join flanges and valve bodies. A bonded washer consists of a flat metal ring with rubber bonded to the internal diameter that is wider than the metal washer. As the bolt or fitting is tightened, it compresses the rubber seal element until fully tightened upon the metal ring creating an efficient high pressure seal.

Bonded washers size list

Contoured back-ups are usually made of rubber and mimic the shape of an o’ring on one side to minimises distortion of the o’ring while under pressure.

Available in NBR90 and FKM90 (Viton)

Self Centring Stainless Steel Bonded Washers

Self centring bonded washers are essentially the same design as the standard Dowty type washers but include an additional non-sealing lip on the ID that locates the washer at the centre of a bolt hole without having to hold and manually locate washer while tightening fasteners.

Self Centring Bonded Washers

Self centring range feature both metric and imperial sizes.
