Stainless Steel Grades

Stainless steel is a popular choice when inherent corrosion resistance, strength and aesthetic appeal are required. Broxap use two grades of stainless steel – Grade 304 & 316.

Grade 304  Stainless Steel

Grade 304 stainless steel is most commonly used for rural and urban locations where there is less risk of sodium chloride and contamination. Grade 304 is used as standard for Broxap stainless steel products.

Ideal for Rural and Urban locations

Grade 316 Stainless Steel

Grade 316 stainless steel has a greater chromium and nickel content than Grade 304, which increases its corrosion resistant properties. This makes it less susceptible to surface pitting and staining. Grade 316 stainless steel is ideal for all external locations, especially waterside and coastal areas where there is a high level of sodium chloride in the air.

Ideal for Coastal and Waterside locations
