The Right Stainless Alloy Makes All the Difference

Stainless Steel 304

With a high chromium and nickel content, Stainless Steel 304, also known as 18/8, offers convenient weldability and formability with excellent corrosion resistance in non-severe environments, making 304 suitable for many general applications.

Stainless Steel 316

Small amounts of carbon and titanium provide Stainless Steel 316 with improved corrosion resistance over 304, especially in marine environments, and are useful for coastal water transport, pharmaceutical processes, and medical devices.

Stainless Steel 317

With excellent strength and corrosion resistance, Stainless Steel 317 improves on the high temperature resistance of 316 and 304 as well, making it suitable for many pipe systems in chemical processing and pulp and paper mills.

Alloy 20 Stainless Steel

This stainless steel alloy provides exceptional corrosion resistance, especially for sulfuric acid. Chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, petrochemical, and pulp and paper processing equipment depend on Alloy 20 pipe and tube.

Find the Right Stainless Steel Blend for the Pipe and Tube Your Project Demands
