Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel Water Tanks

Extra Corrosion Resistance






Grade 316 Stainless Steel includes 2% molybdenum.  This is the metal element that gives this grade of stainless steel extra corrosion resistance in virtually all architectural applications.

Water tanks made from Grade 316 are perfect for sea-side environments.  They can be easily cleaned, resists organic chemicals, and a wide variety of inorganic chemicals.

Here’s a tip!  Fresh water and air react with the chromium oxide compound that forms a passive layer over the steel.  If damaged the passive film reconstitutes itself.  This is how Stainless Steel fights corrosion and chemical attack. So make sure you give your 316 Stainless Steel water tank an occasional rinse with rainwater.
