In coastal areas in the marine environment often see a stainless steel railing rusted, most people will feel strange, stainless steel is not not rusted? That is because there is no choice of 316L stainless steel!

Then someone will say why choose 316L stainless steel?

1, 316L stainless steel pipe has a very good resistance to chloride erosion performance.

We all know that seawater is salty, sea spray and sea breeze contain seawater, seawater contains salt that is sodium chloride, salt if placed next to metal items is to accelerate the corrosion of metal items.

2, 316L stainless steel pipe has very good corrosion resistance.

316L stainless steel pipe contains molybdenum (Mo), so that other corrosion resistance is stronger. After all, seawater has many corrosive chemicals in addition to chlorides, so the stainless steel pipe used in the marine environment must be very strong and stable corrosion resistance.

3, 316L stainless steel pipe has very good resistance to high temperature and pressure.

Under the sea is a high-pressure environment, there are some marine equipment also need to resist high temperature, so in addition to strong corrosion resistance, but also has a high temperature and high pressure resistance of 316L stainless steel pipe is the choice for use in the marine environment.
