What is 316 Stainless Steel

What is 316 Stainless Steel?

Many alloys are added on steel to enhance its desired properties. Steel that has been treated as marine grade, often referred to as Type 316, is resistant to certain types of environment that are corrosive.

There are many varieties of stainless steel , 316. Some common types are L F, N, and H variations. They are all slightly different and each has distinct purposes. L means that 316L steel has the lowest carbon content, which is below 316.

3316 and 3316L Stainless Steel Common Quality

Although they're not as similar to Type 304 commonly found in the food industry, Type 316 and 316L both have better resistance to corrosion and are more durable when exposed to high temperatures. They are also not able to be hardened with heat treatments and can be easily bent and stretched.

What is the difference between 316 as well as 316L? Stainless Steel

316L stainless steel contains less carbon content than the 316. Even though it has a higher carbon-content, 316L is very similar to 316 nearly in every way. The price is comparable, and both are durable and resistant, making it a suitable choice for stressful situations.

For projects that require lots for welding, then 316L is the preferred choice because 316 more prone to welding corrosion as compared to 316L (corrosion within the weld). However, the 316 can be annealed and cooled to resist welding attenuation. The 316L is an extremely appropriate stainless steel for high temperatures and high corrosion which is why it is so widely used in construction and Marine projects.

There is no 316 or 316L is the least expensive option. The 304 is similar to 304L but the price is less. Both are not as durable as the 317 or 317L as they have higher molybdenum contents and better in general resistance to corrosion.
