The AISI 316L stainless steel falls into the category of austenitic steels. They are designed to improve the characteristics of traditional steels, particularly in terms of resistance to corrosion.
The AISI 316L contains molybdenum which greatly improves the resistance of the stainless steel to localized corrosion.
Thanks to molybdenum, fittings are perfectly resistant even in coastal regions and in industrial zones.
Because of its high value, AISI 316L stainless steel is a material particularly appreciated by designers and installers for thermal systems where resistance to corrosion is an important factor, and it is among the more appreciated metals for its performance in systems for drinking water and food uses.
