  • Hi John, Thanks for the question. I am not a Marine Engineer however in my work with Haystack and various disciplines dealing with Naval applications the spec I am most familiar with is MIL-V-1189. This spec outlines materials for various valve components. Feel free to reach out directly if I can provide further info. I have a .pdf of the spec. david.agnew@ihsmarkit.com
