316 / 316L

316 / 316L Stainless Steel

316L alloy has the superior corrosion resistance 316 alloy but also the superior resistance to inter-granular corrosion following welding or stress relieving. It also has good corrosion resistance to most chemicals, salts and acids. The low carbon content of 316L alloy reduces the possibility of in vivo corrosion. 316L alloy has high creep strength at elevated temperatures, and its fabrication characteristics are similar to 302 and 304 alloy.
