UGIMA 4404 (UGIMA 316L) is identical to UGINE 4404 (AISI 316L) in analysis, corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and forging and welding ability, but not with respect to machinability. A specific melting process creates inclusions of malleable oxides with a low melting point. The inclusions improve machinability by 20-30% compared with AISI 316L (1.4404) stainless steel. This datasheet provides information on composition and physical properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: SS-735.
