Among austenitic stainless steels, type 304 is the most versatile and widely used due to its chromium-nickel content and low carbon content. These alloys are all modified forms of the 18% chromium, 8% nickel austenitic alloy. Type 304 stainless steel is great for using in many DIY projects as it is resistant to oxidation and corrosion.
Penny washer is one of the most common washers used over the world.

The magnetism of stainless steel repair penny washers depends on the grade of stainless steel used.
Stainless steel is classified into different grades based on its composition. The most common grades of stainless steel are 304 and 316.
304 stainless steel is generally non-magnetic, but it may become slightly magnetic after cold working, such as bending, cutting or rolling.
316 stainless steel is also generally non-magnetic, even after cold working.
However, there are magnetic grades of stainless steel, such as 430, which contain a higher percentage of iron and are magnetic.
If it is important for your application that the washers are non-magnetic, you should specify a non-magnetic grade of stainless steel, such as 304 or 316.
Yes, stainless steel repair penny washers can be used in high-temperature applications, but the maximum temperature at which they can be used will depend on the grade of stainless steel used.
For example, grade 304 stainless steel can be used at temperatures up to approximately 870°C (1600°F), while grade 316 stainless steel can be used at temperatures up to approximately 925°C (1700°F).
However, at elevated temperatures, the strength of the stainless steel will decrease, and the washer may not provide the same level of load distribution or clamping force as it would at lower temperatures. Additionally, prolonged exposure to high temperatures may cause the stainless steel to become susceptible to intergranular corrosion.
Stainless steel repair penny washers generally do not require any special maintenance, as stainless steel is a durable and corrosion-resistant material. However, there are a few things to consider to ensure the longevity and performance of the washers:
Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the washers and the surrounding components for any signs of wear, damage or corrosion. If any issues are found, it is recommended to replace the washers as necessary.
Cleaning: In some environments, such as marine or industrial environments, there may be a buildup of salt, chemicals or other contaminants on the surface of the stainless steel. Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and water can help to remove these contaminants and maintain the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel.
Proper Installation: Ensure that the washers are properly installed, with the correct torque and alignment. Over-tightening or misalignment can cause deformation or damage to the washers.
Use of Compatible Materials: Ensure that the washers are used with compatible materials. For example, using stainless steel washers with carbon steel fasteners can cause galvanic corrosion. It is recommended to use stainless steel fasteners with stainless steel washers to prevent galvanic corrosion.
No special tools are required for installing stainless steel repair penny washers. They can be installed using standard tools like a wrench or a socket and ratchet. However, it is important to ensure that the tools used are clean and free of any contaminants that could cause corrosion or damage to the stainless steel.
Additionally, it is important to ensure that the fasteners and washers are properly aligned and installed with the correct torque. Over-tightening or misalignment can cause deformation or damage to the washers. A torque wrench can be used to ensure that the fasteners are tightened to the correct torque specified by the manufacturer or a professional engineer.
Stainless steel repair penny washers can be heat treated to increase their hardness and strength. However, it’s important to note that heat treatment may reduce the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel.
For example, grade 304 and 316 stainless steel can be heat treated to increase their hardness and strength, but this may reduce their resistance to intergranular corrosion.
It’s recommended to consult with the manufacturer or a heat treatment specialist for guidance on the appropriate heat treatment for stainless steel repair penny washers. Additionally, it may be necessary to perform post-heat treatment processes, such as passivation, to restore the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel.
