JESSOP Type 316 is a molybdenum-bearing austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel with greatly increased resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in comparison with AISI Type 304 stainless steel. In addition, Jessop Type 316 offers superior creep, stress-to-rupture and tensile strengths at elevated temperatures. Type 316 is suitable for a wide range of applications in chemical and petroleum processing, power plants, pollution-control equipment, pulp and paper plants and food and pharmaceutical processing. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: SS-488. Producer or source: Jessop Steel Company.
