At FIXE, we have detected a tendency towards oxidation in marine environments that is very high and unusual in some shipments of FIXE-1 PLX hangers.
The detected products have a batch number between 0116 and 2216. The first two figures are between 01 and 22 and the last two are always 16.
PLX hangers are manufactured using Duplex stainless steel, a material which, due to its chemical composition and internal structure, displays very high anti-corrosion properties.
List of products that contain FIXE-1 PLX hangers: 038D-10PLX, 038D-12PLX, 211D-10PLX, 211D-12PLX, 036PLX, 603KD-12PLX, 603D-12PLX, 363PLX, 363D-12PLX, 363KD-12PLX, 738PLX, 738D-12PLX, 037PLX, 037D-12PLX, 392PLX, 392D-12PLX, 460PLX, 460D-12PLX, 044D-12PLX,…
