AISI 316 Stainless Steel products
GL products are made using AISI 316. AISI 316 contains slightly more nickel than other grades and 2-3% molybdenum giving it better resistance to corrosion, especially in harsh environments.
Applications to date are in the nuclear, marine, offshore, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries where high performance in remote and corrosive environments is required. They are used largely due to their ability to cope with harsh environments. The units offer the highest standards of performance and durability.
Benefits of Stainless Steel
Corrosion Resistance: Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric and pure water environments, while hich-alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acid, alkaline solutions and chlorine bearing environments; properties which are utilized in process plants.
Fire and Heat Resistance: Special high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades resist scalding and retain strength at high temperatures.
Hygiene: The easy cleaning ability of stainless makes it the first choice for strict hygiene conditions, such as hospitals, kitchens and food processing plants.
Ease of Fabrication: Modern steel-making techniques mean that stainless can be cut, welded, formed, machined and fabricated as readily as traditional steels.
Aesthetic Appearance: The bright, easily maintained surface of stainless steel provides a modern attractive appearance.
Long Term Value: When the total life cycle costs are considered, stainless is often the least expensive material option. Stainless steel rarely rusts.
