N Min. 0,11%
The 316 steel (UNS S31600) and 316L steel (UNS S31603) are molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steels, which are more resistant to general corrosion and pitting/crevice corrosion than the conventional chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steels such as 304 steel. These alloys also offer higher creep, stress-to-rupture, and tensile strength at elevated temperatures. In addition to excellent corrosion resistance and strength properties, the 316 and 316L steels also provide excellent fabricability and formability which are typical of the austenitic stainless steels. The 316 and 316L steels are mainly used in chemical and petrochemical processing, pressure vessels, tanks, heat exchangers, piping systems, flanges, fittings, valves and pumps, food and beverage processing, marine, medical, petroleum refining, pharmaceutical processing, power generation, nuclear, pulp and paper, textiles, water treatment. The 316 / 316L alloys are available at CHUN & VOLLERIN in the following formats: Bars, Plates, Pipes, Stripes.
