PRODEC STAINLESS TYPE 316 is a standardized grade in plate and bar with an improved machining capability over the conventional AISI Type 316. It is a product of extensive laboratory testing and application proven. Its improved machinability offers: shorter machining time; longer tool life; better surface finish; less distortion problems; more homogeneity in microstructures; and marginally increased resistance to corrosion. This datasheet provides information on composition and physical properties. It also includes information on machining. Filing Code: SS-549. Producer or source: Avesta Sheffield Inc.
