Stainless-Steel Jacketing is manufactured from AISI-304, AISI-304L, AISI-316 and AISI-316L prime grade Austenitic Stainless Steel with regular 2B finish for flatness and reduced glare. The yield strength is 30,000/45,000 Psi, the tensile 75,000/100,000 Psi. For easy field fabrication, Stainless Steel Jacketing is supplied in the annealed or soft condition. AISI-304 AND AISI-304L is normally used except in the most corrosive areas where AISI-316 and AISI-316L is justified. All AISI-304, AISI-304L, AISI-316 AND AISI-316L Stainless steel are described in ASTM A-240.
Stainless Steel Jacketing has a melting point of approximately 2500°F Stainless Steel offers the best fire protection of all metals used for metal jacketing.

Width and Description Coils and flat Sheets 24” through 48”, 2-1/4 and 2-1/2” (12 x 64 mm, 16 x 64 mm) deep corrugated sheets. 33”, 3″ x 3/4″ , 1 1/4″ x 1/4″ ( 6 x 32 mm )
Stainless Steel jacketing is available in several finishes, which include smooth, stucco embossed, and in the lighter gauges, 3/16” corrugated. The stucco embossed finish on Stainless Steel Jacketing reduces glare from sunlight, adds strength and has more potential for masking application fingerprints, scratches, dents and other minor surface blemishes.
The primary use of Stainless Steel sheet and jacketing is for hostile environments such as the pulp, paper, textile, refinery and Petro-Chemical applications.
Stainless Steel jacketing is supplied with a moisture barrier, consists of 40-pound Kraft paper coated with one-mil thick, low density polyethylene film, heat and pressure bonded to the interior surface. This is moisture barrier prevents galvanic corrosion caused by contact of dissimilar metals in the presence of moisture, and also chemical corrosion caused by contact of dissimilar metals in the presence of moisture, and also chemical corrosion caused by certain insulation materials when the sheets are installed over damp insulation materials.
For increased galvanic and corrosion protection, three mil polyethylene or Poly-Surlyn* moisture barrier are available.
