The pinnacle of automotive plumbing, our 316L marine-grade tubing has the highest level of corrosion protection combined with the stunning appearance of polished stainless steel.
316L contains molybdenum, a corrosion resistor that is not found in 304 grade stainless.
Proper wall thickness
Thick-walled 304 stainless tubing meant for heavy industrial applications will damage automotive tube-working tools. Our 0.028”-walled tubing is strong enough for automotive, marine, and light industrial applications, yet easy to work using DIY automotive tools.
BrakeQuip 316L is soft-annealed, a heat treatment process which makes straightening, cutting, bending, and flaring far easier than with non-annealed stainless.
