Stainless steel 316 and 316L

Stainless Steel 316 is an austenitic stainless steel containing chromium-nickel two and 3% molybdenum. Ingredients molybdenum increase corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting in chloride ion solutions and increase strength at high temperatures.

Type stainless steel 316 grades is especially effective in acidic environments, protected against corrosion with sulfuric, hydrochloric, acetic, formic and tartaric acid, as well as acid and alkali chloride sulfate.


Stainless steel 316 commonly used for the converter exhaust, furnace parts, heat exchangers, jet engine parts, pharmaceutical and photographic equipment, valve and pump parts, chemical processing equipment substances, tanks, evaporators, as well as pulp, paper and textile processing equipment and parts exposed to marine environments.

Type stainless steel 316l is an ultra-low carbon version of alloy steel 316. The low carbon content on harm reduction 316L carbide precipitation as a result of welding. Therefore, when using welding 316L is necessary to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.

Although similar to the Type 304, Type 316 and 316L can both better and stronger anti-abrasion and high temperatures. They both can not be hardened by heat treatment and can be easily configured and drink.

Incubate stainless steels 316 and 316l require heating to between 1900-2100 ° F (1038-1149 ° C) before cooling rapidly.
