- Technical Information
Highly corrosion-resistant grade of austenitic stainless steel with great mechanical properties. Ideal for marine and chemical applications.
Stainless Steel 316L is an austenitic steel with excellent durability, good biocompatibility and adequate elevated temperature properties. The alloy has low carbon content which makes it particularly recommended when there is a risk of intergranular corrosion. Thus, parts manufactured with stainless steel have a low carbon content which makes the material ideal for corrosion resistance applications.
