Amigo Impex is a well established and leading manufacturers and suppliers of STAINLESS STEEL 316 & 316L Fasteners. We take pride to have served a large base of clients with our wide range of products. The welded corners of these fasteners typically rust whereas the bulk of the exposed stainless remains untouched. It has lower carbon such that when welded the chromium carbide that forms does not reduce the chromium to the point where the corrosion of the stainless is deleteriously impacted.
These fasteners are an austenitic alloy comprise of nickel, chromium, and iron. These are extremely resistant to the effect of all kinds of acids. This is why it is one of the most sought after fasteners in this category. These portray workable resistance to corrosion both pitting and crevice even in the presence of chemicals containing chlorides. The content of niobium gives stabilization to the product against sensitization. These are a perfect blend of corrosion resistance with enhanced mechanical properties and ease of fabrication.
There is certainly no clear reason for this in these fasteners. The differences in these fasteners are probably associated with the subordinate strength and low carbon. Due the low carbon content, these may be easier to shape and form. These affects stress left the steel after is forming up for welding. The welding of these fasteners is based on a low carbon composition. All kinds of welding is suited to these fasteners. This is to avoid effects of inter crystalline corrosion.
These fasteners show very high oxidation resistance as compared to other fasteners. These are known for portraying better corrosion resistance that 304 type stainless steel. These are known for its pitting resistance. Due to its strong resistance to most chemicals it is widely used in the paper and textile industries.
The mechanical properties of these fasteners make it apt for many industrial applications. These are well used in building the parts of furnace. It is also used in manufacturing pressure vessels and tanks. Even it is applied in building industrial boilers. As it is resistant to chemical attacks that are why pulp and paper processing industries. It is also used in textile units and in offshore and onshore marine applications.
