All the products we distribute are produced in our company in Cabrera de Mar with raw material coming from European producers. Due to our making policy we can certify the chemical composition of stainless steel Aisi-316, 17-4 Ph... Our products are also tested by the APPLUS laboratories to guarantee the break loads and the work loads. In our catalogue you can find the results of the tests that the laboratory gives us. APPLUS is the official laboratory in our region that guarantees all the results.You will find two results.
1. Work Load. It is the most important issue. The work load shows the working limit of each piece / model. The result shows when the piece loses all the properties that it has.
2. Break Load. It is when the piece breaks after suffering a big deformation. However, there may be differences between one piece and another.
We recommend to our clients to apply a "safety factor" called "safe working load" depending on each application.
We recommend a safe Working Load of -25% on the final results indicated in the Catalogue.
All our products are forged in cold, hot and mechanized. We have always refused casting because of the problems of porosity, resistance, breaking and deformation it has.
