Penn Stainless inventory includes 316/316L (UNS S31600 / S31603), in sheet, sheet coil, plate, plate coil, bar, structural and tubular products. The low carbon content of 316L reduces the possibility of in vivo corrosion for medical implant use. 316L is the lower carbon version of 316 and is immune from sensitization; therefore, it is very frequently used in heavy gauge welded components. Good oxidation resistance in intermittent service to 1600°F (870°C) and in continuous service to 1700°F (925°C). Grade 316L, the low carbon version of 316 and is immune from sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation). Penn Stainless Products Annealing temperature range is 1900 to 2100°F (1038 to 1149°C). If you know what you need, you can quickly get a quote here. Special consideration is needed to compensate for a higher coefficient of thermal expansion to avoid warping and distortion. Grade 316L is more resistant to carbide precipitation. Fe, <0.03% C, 16-18.5% Cr, 10-14% Ni, 2-3% Mo, <2% Mn, <1% Si, <0.045% P, <0.03% S​Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. Type 316/316L is somewhat more difficult to machine than Type 304 because of its toughness. 316/316L types being extremely tough and ductile, can be readily cold worked such as roll form, swaging, cold heading, deep drawing. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments.

Stay up to date with the latest from Penn Stainless. ASTM specs, color codes, stainless grades, and other useful product resources and downloads. Generally, this grade is dual-certified to meet both 316 and 316L. In addition, Alloy 316/ 316L provides excellent elevated temperature tensile, creep and stress-rupture strengths, as well as outstanding formability and weldability. Our main stainless inventory and processing center is located in Quakertown, PA. Take advantage of our other mill depot stocking locations in: The molybdenum addition enhances the corrosion resistance over that of 304/304L in halide environments as … Considered resistant to potable water with up to about 1000mg/L chlorides at ambient temperatures, reducing to about 500mg/L at. High creep strength at elevated temperatures. 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. AISI Type 316/316L Stainless Steel, annealed, cold drawn, round Subject to pitting and crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments, and to stress corrosion cracking above about 122°F (50°C). Material Notes: Similar to Type 316 for superior corrosion resistance, but also has superior resistance to intergranular corrosion following welding or stress relieving. Good corrosion resistance to most chemicals, salts, and acids and molybdenum content helps resistance to marine environments. Hardness (Brinell) MAX Hardness (Rockwell B) MAX; 316 (S31600) 75: 30: 40: 217: 95: 316L (S31603) 70: 25: 40: 217: 95 Alloy 316/316L is molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel. As large a tool as possible and great amounts of cutting fluid should be used. Phone: 215-536-3053 Heavy positive feeds at low speeds should be considered since 316/316L work hardens rapidly.

Hot off the presses from the world of stainless steel and manufacturing. 316L has fabrication characteristics similar to Types 302 and 304. Most producers recommend a maximum forging temperature between 2100°F and 2300°F. Quakertown, PA 18951, Toll Free: 1-800-222-6144 Usually regarded as the “marine grade stainless steel” – but is not resistant to warm sea water. Type 316/316L is a chromium nickel austenitic stainless steel containing molybdenum. Food preparation equipment, especially in chloride environments, EURONORM: X1 CrNiMo 17 12 2 / X3 CrNiMo 17 12 2, Generally more resistant than 304 in range of atmospheric environments and many corrosive media due to the increased chromium. AISI Type 316L Stainless Steel, annealed bar. Alloy 316/316L is ideally suited for applications requiring corrosion resistance superior to Type 304 and has good elevated temperature strength. Corrosion resistance is obtained if the forgings are given a final anneal. Type 316 (UNS S31600), Type 316L (UNS S31603) Description. Severely cold formed parts should be annealed to remove stresses.
