Better corrosion resistance than
Type 304. Low carbon chromium-nickel stainless with good weldability and
temperature resistance. Max. temp. to maintain corrosion resistance is 1600
Length and Width Tolerances
This austenitic stainless steel has
an increased molybdenum content to increase its resistance to corrosion when
compared to other 300 series alloys. It will resist scaling at temperatures
up to 1600 F (871 C) and maintains good mechanical properties and creep
strength at high temperatures.
316 is recommended for any
application exposed to saltwater (including immersion).
