Is the copper washer good?
Copper washers are known for their excellent thermal conductivity, making them ideal for high-temperature applications.
They are also resistant to corrosion and oxidation, making them durable and long-lasting.
Do copper washers need to be replaced?
Generally, these washers should be replaced rather than re-used, as the act of deforming an annealed copper washer effectively
“hardens” the material, making it more difficult to crush next time, therefore you may not get a good seal when re-using a copper washer.
