Most to-220 shoulder washers I've seen only have about 0.01" plastic
material between the screw and the TO-220 metal tab, for 600VDC
operation this seems to be a bit low, there is room for thicker material
in between a 4-40 screw and the TO-220 tab, maybe 0.016" material,
anyone know of a shoulder washer that has a thicker insulation in this area?

The dielectric constant of nylon is 500-600V/.001", so you should be fine
with the one you have.
