STAINLESS STEEL GRADE 316 IN NAIROBI,KENYA (+254 724 381 416)

  • Posted by: Citizen Cooling Solutions Limited

Citizen Cooling Solutions Limited is the leading supplier of Stainless Steel Grade 316 in the Kenyan market and across the borders.

Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. It is readily brake or roll formed into a variety of parts for applications in the industrial, architectural, and transportation fields. Grade 316 also has outstanding welding characteristics. Post-weld annealing is not required when welding thin sections.

Grade 316 offers vastly superior corrosion resistance to chlorides and acids.

The austenitic structure also gives these grades excellent toughness, even down to cryogenic temperatures.
