In the fluid and intuitive forms of the Tubico universe, the substance of quality steel reigns supreme. For our lines, we have exclusively chosen stainless steel, i.e. stainless because it has a high resistance to corrosion.
316L and 304
Tubico products are made of AISI 316L and AISI 304.
AISI 304 stainless steel is an austenitic, or stainless, steel containing Chromium (18%) and Nickel (8%).
AISI 316 stainless steel is also an austenitic steel containing Chromium (18%), Nickel (8%) and Molybdenum (3%).
316L tends to be used in highly corrosive situations, such as spas and swimming pools, due to the high strength given by the molybdenum. Steel 304 is also very resistant, especially to nitric acid.
A sustainable material
We chose stainless steel for its high strength capacity, but also for its sustainability. It is 100% recyclable, lead-free and does not need protective coatings such as chrome plating, which is highly polluting to the environment. In addition, high resistance against corrosion means durability over time, thus avoiding constant replacement and waste.
Bathroom and kitchen
Stainless steel has another fundamental characteristic: it is hygienic. Indeed, the high strength, absence of surface porosity and bacterial removability during cleaning make both AISI 304 and AISI 316L the perfect solution for bathrooms and kitchens. Tubico thus helps to maintain a high level of hygiene, protecting the health of those living in the space and of the planet.
