What is 316 Stainless Steel
What exactly is 316 Stainless Steel?
Alloys are frequently added with steel in order to increase its desired properties. For instance, the marine-grade stainlesssteel, also known as Type 316, is resistant to certain types of harsh environments.
There are several different kinds of stainless steel 316. Some common types are L F, H, and H variations. Each one is distinct, and each is used for various purposes. L refers to 316L as having the lowest carbon content, which is below the 316.
316 and 316L Stainless Steel Common Quality
While they are similar to Type 304 commonly found in the food industry, the Type 316 and 316L both are more resistant to corrosion and are stronger at higher temperatures. They are also not able to be hardened by heat treatment and can be easily bent and stretched.
A distinction between the 316 and 316L Stainless Steel
The stainless steel of 316L is lower in carbon content than the 316. Even though it has a reduced carbon level, 316L is very similar to 316 in virtually every way. The price is comparable, while both are extremely durable as well as corrosion-resistant, making it a suitable choice for difficult-to-reach situations.
However, for projects that require a significant amount of welding is a better choice due to the fact that 316 is more prone to welding corrosion in comparison to an 316L (corrosion inside the weld). However, 316 can be annealed to protect against welding attenuation. The 316L is a ideal stainless steel to use in high temperatures and high corrosion applications which is why it's so popular in marine and construction.
No 316, nor 316L is the best option. The 304 is comparable to the 304L however, the cost is lower. However, neither is as robust as the 317 and 317L, which have more molybdenum and have better all-around corrosion protection.
