Stainless Steel All Thread Rod
316 Stainless Steel has similar physical and mechanical properties compared to 18-8 Stainless. The primary differentiator is in Type 316’s material composition: 10% Chromium, 16% Nickel and 2% Molybdenum.The additional Nickel content as well as the inclusion of Molybdenum increases corrosion resistance to sulfides and chlorides (like salt). Many customers select 316 Stainless Steel over 18-8 for seaside applications.
