A387 Grade 11 Class 2 the high-quality chrome moly steel is used in a wide range of industries and is highly effective, especially in the chemical, oil, and gas industry, where gases and liquids are typically stored at high temperature (see pressure vessels).

In addition, the higher levels of chromium provide excellent resistance against oxidation and corrosion.
