What exactly is 316 Stainless Steel?

The addition of alloys is often done to steel in order to enhance the desired properties. The marine-grade stainless steel called Type 316, is resistant to certain types of environment that are corrosive.

There are numerous types of stainless steel 316. The most common are the L, F, N, and H variations. Each has its own distinct characteristics, and each serves the same purpose. L indicates that 316L steel has the lowest carbon content, which is below the 316.

The 316 and the 316L Stainless Steel Common Quality

Although they’re comparable to Type 304 commonly found in the food industry, the Type 316 and 316L both are more resistant to corrosion and are more durable at high temperatures. They cannot also be hardened through heat treatment. They are able to be easily stretched and shaped.

A distinction between the 316 and 316L Stainless Steel

Steel 316L has less carbon than 316. Even with its higher carbon-content, 316L is very similar to 316 nearly in every way. Cost is the same, as are both durable and corrosion-resistant, making the two a great choice for conditions that require a lot of stress.

For projects that require lots for welding, then 316L can be a better choice , as 316L is more prone to welding corrosion in comparison to 316L (corrosion in the welding). However, the 316 can be annealed to resist welding attenuation. Also, 316L is a appropriate stainless steel for temperatures and high corrosion applications which is why it’s so popular in marine and construction.

Both 316 and 316L is the most economical option. The 304 is comparable to the 304L however, the price is lower. Both are not as durable as the 317 or 317L with higher molybdenum contents and better quality corrosion resistant overall.
