Thrust Washers & Bearings

Thrust washers are often used in bearing assemblies and in rotating applications. The washers are designed to carry an axial or bearing load. Thrust washers are usually offered with a high hardness and a smooth surface. They are typically supplied in a hardened format, but can also be supplied case hardened when required. Thrust washers can be ground flat and parallel for special situations where tight tolerances and flat surfaces are required. 

Types of Materials

Thrust washers and bearings can also be supplied for lighter and low impact situations in non-metallic Nylon, PTFE, Acetal, POM, and other materials. Thrust washers are most commonly made from steel. On the other hand, they can be supplied in phosphorous bronze, stainless steel, and other metallic materials. Nylon thrust washers are also available with MDS as an additive for wear resistance.

Flat Washers


Thrust bearings are engineered to facilitate linear motion or rotation near a fixed axis. In addition, this type of washer can be utilized to prevent movement. However, a majority of thrust washers are created to promote movement and reduce friction. The thrust bearings in our catalog are designed to withstand corrosion from a wide array of chemicals. 

Our bearings are assembled to process shock loads in commercial applications. Thrust washers can be utilized to promote fast or slow speeds. Each part is manufactured with strong materials to prevent damage when you start or stop your machinery. If you need to use thrust washers in projects that are high in moisture, we will help you choose a material that will not warp.

Do not let corrosion impact the efficiency of your operations at your facility or property. Stainless steel and nylon can be utilized to increase the corrosion resistance of your thrust bearings. If you need help finding flat washers or other types of parts, give our team a call by phone at (847) 956-1344. We are dedicated to helping you find a flat washer in a material and thickness that meet your requirements. 

Flat washers are assembled in materials such as bronze, stainless steel, Nylon, PTFE, Acetal, and POM. We also offer other types of washers and components such as fender, clipped OD, slotted square, and D shaped ID. We carry a wide variety of washers and machined parts to meet the specifications of your project. The components in our catalog are manufactured in a 230,000 square foot facility.
