Type 316L (UNS S31603) is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless and heat-resisting steel with superior corrosion resistance to other chromium-nickel steels when exposed to many types of chemical corrodents, as well as marine atmospheres. Carbide precipitation as a result of welding in this low carbon version will be minimized, resulting in less susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. 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, and joining. Filing Code: SS-900. Producer or source: J & L Specialty Steel Inc.
