HIGH QUALITY STAINLESS STEEL
GRADES USED ACROSS THE WORLD
GO INTO OUR PRODUCTS
Platinum usage is limited to premium high-end Stainless Steel grades for fabrication in water tanks. Different grades have varying corrosion resistance, strength, toughness and high and low-temperature performance.
Below are our high-performance steels:
Stainless Steel 304 and 304L
Stainless Steel 304 has | 18-20% Chromium | 8-11% Nickel | 2% Manganese.
FOR HOUSEHOLDS: This is the most common Stainless Steel since it has enough corrosion resistance for most applications and is less expensive than other grades. An austenitic metallurgical structure makes it ductile and well-suited for forming a wide range of products.
Stainless Steel 316 and 316L
Stainless Steel 316 has | 16.5-18% Chromium | 10-13% Nickel | 2-3% Molybdenum |
FOR FACTORIES: The added Molybdenum makes this grade more corrosion-resistant than Stainless Steel 304. Platinum uses Stainless Steel 316 in highly corrosive environments such as chemical handling tanks and tanks near marine environments.
Duplex Stainless Steel 2205
Duplex Stainless Steel has | 20-28% Chromium | 2-5% Molybdenum | 5-8% Nickel.
Higher Chromium and Molybdenum content gives Duplex Stainless Steels higher corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. Compared with 316, using Duplex is cheaper due to the lower nickel content and higher strength for a given thickness, enabling thinner plates to be used. The most popular grade of Duplex Stainless Steel is the Standard Duplex, or 2205 Stainless Steel.
SERIOUS HEALTH HAZARDS OF
PLASTIC WATER STORAGE TANKS.
TIME TO CHANGE IS NOW.
Plastic water tanks available in the market today are mostly manufactured from Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Bisphenol (BPA), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX), or Thermoplastic Polymer, which have very well-known health risks for end users.
When these plastic tanks are exposed to long Indian summer months when the mercury rises above 40O C, these chemicals start to melt down and mix with water. Leaching also happens due to exposure of UV rays thus altering the original composition.
When there is excess sunlight reflection on the sides of the water tank, the light that comes through causes algae to grow. Thus when water is consumed by your family members , it can cause various health hazards to them.
The most common health hazards noticed as an effect from plastic storage tanks are:
• Endocrine system damage
• Gastric problems
• Liver damage
• Frequent headaches
• Affects the reproductive system in females
• Skin diseases
