LED Underwater Lights of stainless steel 304, 316 housing, what is the difference?

     LED underwater lights we are not unfamiliar, private pool lighting, outdoor fountain landscape will use this type of lamps and lanterns, in addition to the need for IP68 waterproof performance, the durability of the lamp housing is also very important, the general manufacturers will choose stainless steel as the material of the lamp housing.


     But when we buy LED stainless steel underwater lights, manufacturers will provide a variety of lighting options, including stainless steel housing material there are two options, namely stainless steel 304 and stainless steel 316, laymen's friends see these two types, we usually have doubts, different models of products in terms of performance is bound to be different, stainless steel 304 and stainless steel 316 what is the difference, which is better?


There really doesn't seem to be much difference between the two.


2. Performance.

304, 316 are austenitic stainless steel, 316 is in 304 stainless steel added molybdenum (MO), and has more nickel elements, so 316 stainless steel anti-seawater rust ability than 304 is better. 316 is generally used in the offshore environment.

The following is a comparison table of 304 and 316 material content.


3. Price.

Due to the addition of molybdenum and nickel elements in 316, 316 stainless steel is more expensive than 304 stainless steel.


     The above is the difference between stainless steel 304, stainless steel 316, consumers in the choice of lamps and lanterns, according to their own needs to choose, no doubt, stainless steel 316 is a more excellent material, but if the budget is limited, stainless steel 304 is also a good choice, but for saltwater pools, marine operations, it is best to choose stainless steel 316 material as LED underwater lamps.
