IN WHAT KIND OF ENVIRONMENTS AND TYPES OF ROCK SHOULD I EQUIP WITH 316L STAINLESS STEEL?
Inox 316L anchors are designed and approved to be installed in the vast majority of outdoor environments that are not aggressive enough to create SCC. These are usually outdoors and basically in natural areas with temperatures between 70 and -30ºC. It is important to remark that 316L stainless steel is not recommended for highly corrosive environments. For these kind of environments, Fixe, following the latest updates to the CE959 Standard, offers the material that provides the highest resistance on the market: the titanium.
In some ravines, the microbiology or chemicals contained in the water can be a potential source of high corrosion. And because of that, special attention is advised in the regular reviews of the anchors installed in this kind of environments.
