Stainless Steel INOX 316+

Stainless steel grade 316, often referred to as "Inox" (short for the French term "inoxydable" meaning corrosion-resistant), is a highly durable and corrosion-resistant alloy of steel. It is distinguished by its incorporation of molybdenum, which significantly enhances its resistance to corrosion, particularly against chlorides and marine environments. This makes 316 stainless steel an ideal choice for applications in harsh chemical conditions or where saltwater exposure is a concern. Commonly, it is used in the manufacturing of marine hardware, chemical and petrochemical equipment, medical devices, and in architectural elements in coastal regions. Its superior anti-corrosive properties, coupled with good heat resistance, make it a preferred material in both industrial and consumer applications where both strength and longevity are critical.

316 grade stainless is also extensively used in the food manufacturing industry due to its excellent corrosion resistance and its ability to withstand rigorous cleaning processes. Resistant to corrosion from acidic and saline solutions often encountered in food processing environments. This makes it ideal for equipment used on tanks, pipelines, cooking pots, and surfaces that come into direct contact with food products. Its non-reactive nature ensures that there is no flavor contamination or leaching of materials into the food, maintaining the purity and safety of food products. The ease of cleaning and sanitizing stainless steel 316 surfaces also helps in maintaining strict hygiene standards, which are crucial in the food industry.
