The features of stainless steel AISI 316 DIN 1.4404
Stainless steel AISI 316 DIN 1.4404 is an austenitic alloy, composed of a high percentage of binders, made of a quantity of Chromium (Cr) between 2 and 3%, Nickel (Ni) between 10 and 13% and Molybdenum (Mo) between 2 and 3%. Stainless steel 316 is also available in the version L, that means Low Carbon, containing a low quantity of Carbon.
The high quantity of Chromium and the presence of Molybdenum allow a greater resistance to the aggression of chlorides, such as sea water and deicing salt. Other important characteristics of this material are the resistance to corrosion caused by acids, an excellent resistance to pitting, that is the corrosion that produces small localized penetrating holes, the resistance to welding, a good pliability and a pleasant aesthetic effect.
For these advantages, stainless steel 316 and 316L are ideal for the application in the food, chemical and building industries, swimming pools, maritime and coastal places, industrial kitchens and hospitals.
Profilpas profiles in stainless steel AISI 316 DIN 1.4404
Profilpas has included products in stainless steel AISI 316 DIN 1.4404 in its vast collection, by distinguishing them with the letter X in the article code, thus satisfying all the needs at 360°.
The profiles for external corners include various items in stainless steel 316, such as Protrim RIX/ and RINX/, that are a perfect combination of design and functionality, thanks to the elegant and stylish effect on one side and the features of the material on the other side. Proangle Q and Proangle, characterized by a square shape, are also respectively available in the versions ZQINX/ and AIX/ and, lastly, Probord is also available in the version ILNX/.
The profiles for internal corners for the connection between floors and walls also include stainless steel 316 items: Proround M GINX/, a connection profile that is perfect for those places where a certain hygienic level is required as it allows to avoid the deposit of dirt thanks to its curvature.
In conclusion, the shower drains flush with the floor Smart Drain are also available in stainless steel AISI 316 DIN 1.4404. Therefore, they are suitable for the application in “difficult” places, such as marine zones, swimming pools and places subject to chemical stresses.
