    What is Leather?

    Our leather washers are made from tanned cattle hide and are available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. During processing, the leather is made stable and neutralised from the risk of putrefaction; this ensures that the leather washers are fit for purpose and long lasting.

    As a rigid and rugged material, leather has a high tensile strength and is resistant to flex, tears, and punctures. Our leather is normally skived on one side and therefore appears dark brown or black on one side. However, it can be supplied in a range of colours on the opposite side, allowing customers to customize their final product.  

    Why use Leather Washers?

    When tightened, washers create a level surface, serve as a spacer or seal, or spread pressure when placed between two surfaces.

    Leather washers have numerous advantages, including being water resistant and capable of withstanding heavy torque and manipulation. Our leather products offer strength, durability and a range of resistances but should be oiled to preserve their lifespan.
