316 Stainless Steel

Type 316 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance to most chemicals, salts and acids and is more resistant to marine atmosphere because of an addition of 2.0 to 3.0% molybdenum. This addition improves the corrosion resistance of austenitic steels and imparts hot strength characteristics. Another valuable property of Type 316 stainless steel is high creep strength at elevated temperatures. Fabrication characteristics of Type 316 are similar to Type 302 or 304.

Type 316 stainless steel has extensive use in chemical processing equipment when better corrosion resistance is required than is afforded by chromium-nickel steels. Also 316 is specified for use with high purity products where product contamination must be held to a minimum. Typical applications are Food Processing, Chemical Processing, Photographic, Pharmaceutical and Textile Finishing Equipment and Marine Exterior Trim.

Type 316L stainless steel is available in select gages. Please inquire with our customer service representative.
