The Strongest Name In Specialty Metals
Type 316/316L Austenitic stainless steel
Type 316 is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel
that contains molybdenum. This addition increases general
corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from
chloride ion solutions, and provides increased strength at
elevated temperatures. Properties are similar to those of
Type 304 SS except that this alloy is somewhat stronger at
elevated temperatures. Corrosion resistance is improved,
particularly against sulfuric, hydrochloric, acetic, formic
and tartaric acids; acid sulfates and alkaline chlorides.
Type 316L is an extra-low carbon version of Type 316 that minimizes harmful carbide precipitation due to welding.
Exhaust manifolds, furnace parts, heat exchangers, jet engine parts, pharmaceutical and photographic equipment, valve and pump trim, chemical equipment, digesters, tanks, evaporators, pulp, paper and textile processing equipment, parts exposed to marine atmospheres and tubing.
Type 316L is used extensively for weldments where its immunity to carbide precipitation due to welding assures optimum corrosion resistance.
