Stainless steel 1.4404

One of the most commonly used steels.
Can be used in applications where
maximum corrosion resistance is required.

Key features

It is a stainless austenitic steel, which is characterized by increased corrosion resistance in chloride environment due to its increased molybdenum content.
316L steel is characterized by high strength, ductility, toughness and heat resistance.

Suitable uses

Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, this material is widely used in the food, chemical, shipbuilding or medical industries.
