Advantage of 316 stainless steel?

Jun 14, 2016

All of our led underwater boat lights are made by 316 stainless steel housing. Why we choose 316 stainless steel housing? What is the advantage of our boat lights housing?


316 stainless steel by adding Mo element, make its corrosion resistance, and improve the high temperature strength, high temperature can reach 1200-1200 degrees, can be used in critical conditions.


Corrosion resistance

Corrosion resistance is superior than 304 stainless steel. In the pulp and paper production process has good corrosion resistance performance. 316 stainless steel also have good erosion resistance for ocean.

Heat resistance

Under 871 ° C (1600 ° F) of use and at 927 ° C (1700 ° F) above, the continuous use of 316 stainless steel (06 cr17ni12mo2) has good oxidation resistance.At 427 ° C to 857 ° C (800 ° F to 1575 ° F) range, it is best not to use 316 stainless steel continuous, but outside the temperature range of continuous use 316 stainless steel, the stainless steel has good heat resistance.The performance of the resistance of 316 l stainless steel carbide precipitation is better than 316 stainless steel, can use the above temperature range。
