Curved washers, also known as saddle washers and crescent washers, are used to absorb vibrations to resist loosening of components. These curved washers distribute the load to a larger area and may be used as spring retainers and spacers in the electronics, food, chemical, and construction industries where vibrations are paramount. Curved washers are commonly made from stainless steel for corrosion prevention and are available in various diameter sizes.
