norelem expands its portfolio with A4 stainless steel

norelem has expanded its portfolio of products with the new A4 quality stainless steel connection elements for demanding environments.
The new range from norelem offers higher corrosion and acid resistance. The components include stainless-steel screws, nuts and washers and boast good workability and other mechanical properties that make them ideal for use in demanding environments.
The new A4 quality elements from norelem have significantly improved corrosion and acid resistance compared to A2 stainless steel, and therefore can be used in environments with a close proximity to salt water, such as shipyards. The higher salt content in both the water and air in these environments means that lower quality stainless steel components would rust immediately, making the A4 quality stainless steel connection elements ideally suited for these applications.
A4 stainless steels belong to the group of austenitic steels, which are also called chromium-nickel steels. It is the high chromium content of these stainless steels that make them so corrosion resistant and therefore so useful in environments with high acid contents.
These A4 quality stainless steel connecting elements can be found in norelem’s 2022 edition of THE BIG GREEN BOOK.
