Custom 316 316l Cold Rolled Stainless Steel Sheets / Plates 2B
The stainles steel 316/316L is molybdenum-bearing austenitic
stainless steel. The higher nickel and molybdenum content in this
grade allows it to demonstrate better overall corrosion resistant
properties than 304, especially with regard to pitting and crevice
corrosion in chloride environments. In addition, Alloy 316/ 316L
provides excellent elevated temperature tensile, creep and
stress-rupture strengths, as well as outstanding formability and
weldability. 316L is the lower carbon version of 316 and is immune
from sensitization; therefore, it is very frequently used in heavy
gauge welded components.
0.2% MPa (min)
Generally more resistant than 304 in range of atmospheric
environments and many corrosive media due to the increased chromium
and molybdenum content.
Subject to pitting and crevice corrosion in warm chloride
environments, and to stress corrosion cracking above about 122°F
Considered resistant to potable water with up to about 1000mg/L
chlorides at ambient temperatures, reducing to about 500mg/L at
Usually regarded as the “marine grade stainless steel” – but is not
resistant to warm sea water.
Good oxidation resistance in intermittent service to 1600°F (870°C)
and in continuous service to 1700°F (925°C). Grade 316L is more
resistant to carbide precipitation.
Type 316/316L is somewhat more difficult to machine than Type 304
because of its toughness.
316/316L machines with chip characteristics that are tough and
Chip breakers and curlers are advised.
As large a tool as possible and great amounts of cutting fluid
should be used.
Heavy positive feeds at low speeds should be considered since
316/316L work hardens rapidly.
