316, 316L, 18-8, 18Cr-12Ni-Mo AUSTENITIC STAINLESS STEEL

ALSO SEE INFORMATION ON 316 ON OUR CASTING PAGE

Description

316 and 316/L (UNS S31600 & S31603) are molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steels. The stainless steel bar alloy also offer higher creep, stress to rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures, in addition to excellent corrosion resistance and strength properties. 316/L refers to the lower carbon content to allow for greater corrosion protection when welding.

316 contains molybdenum. This addition increases general corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from chloride ion solutions, and provides increased strength at elevated temperatures.

Applications

food and pharmaceutical processing equipment, marine exterior trim, surgical implants, and industrial equipment that handles the corrosive process chemicals used to produce inks, rayons, photographic chemicals, paper, textiles, bleaches, and rubber.
