New EMKA stainless steel AISI 316 hinges for specialist cabinets
- Published: Tuesday, 25 October 2016 10:08
The new EMKA stainless steel hinges in AISI 316 offer all the high performance strength and advanced corrosion resistance benefits of that material.
They are suited for use in especially demanding situations such as on cabinets and housings for use in tunnels or offshore.
The presence of molybdenum in the 316 grade alloy confers a much improved degree of corrosion resistance compared to the more common 304 grade, especially in saline/chloride conditions, as well as a range of other industrial solvents.
The new introductions include the Program 1110 180° lift-off hinge for inline cabinets with adjacent doors, alongside the Program 1031 which is a 125° concealed hinge for single cabinets, with a retained hinge pin.
