316L stainless steel is very similar to 316 stainless steel. It is
still considered a molybdemum-bearing grade and has properties that
make it highly resistant to corrosive degradation. 316L stainless
steel differs from 316 in that contains lower levels of carbon. The
decreased level of carbon in this stainless steel makes this grade
immune from sensitisation or grain boundary carbide precipitation.
Because of this unique property, Grade 316L tends to be commonly
used in heavy gauge welding situations. Additionally the lower
carbon levels make this grade easier to machine. Like 316 stainless
steel, 316L because of its austenitic structure is extremely tough,
even in the most extreme of temperatures.
316L stainless steel standard: ASTM, AISI,JIS, DIN,GB
316L stainless steel chemical composition %:
C(max):0.03, Mn(max):2.00, P(max):0.045, S(max):0.030,
Si(max):0.75, Cr:16.0-18.0, Ni:10.0-14.0, Mo:2.0-3.0, N(max):0.1
316L stainless steel mechanical properties:
Tensile strength(min):485Mpa, Yield strength(min):170Mpa,
Elongation in 2 in. or 50 mm,min, %: 40, Hardness: HB(max): 217,
316L stainless steel characteristics:
316L stainless steel is easily welded by all commercial processes.
If forging or hammer welding it is recommended to anneal after
these processes to help avoid unwarranted corrosion.
Not hardenable by heat treatment, however often cold working the
alloy has proven to increase hardness and tensile strength.
Sometimes know by industry professionals as marine grade stainless
for its uncanny ability to resist pitting corrosion.
316L stainless steel applications:
316L Grade Stainless Steel is one of the more common austenitic
stainless steels. Because of its outstanding toughness against
corrosion you can typical find 316L Stainless used in the following
applications: food preparation equipment, pharmaceutical, marine,
boat fittings, and medical implants (i.e- orthopaedic implants)
