316 Stainless Steel
CF8M-316 is also the common form of stainless steel check valves. It has almost the same physical and mechanical properties as 304 stainless steel 316 stainless steel differ from 304 is the addition of molybdenum, an alloy which drastically enhances corrosion resistance, especially for more saline or chloride-exposed environments. Our CF8M material is America standard ASTM A351 CF8M. Also be similar to material SCS14 and 1.4408. The slightly higher price point of 316 is well worth it in areas with low chloride exposure, especially space where near the coast and salted area.
