316 Stainless Steel Miniature Balls
AISI 316 stainless steel balls meet requirements for an unhardened ball. 316SS is an austenitic, Chromium-Nickel-Molybdenum stainless offering superior corrosion resistance due to the higher Nickel, Molybdenum content. Typical applications include marine equipment, textile finishing equipment and valves.
