ALZ 316L is a Cr-Ni-Mo steel with a very low carbon content (0.030 max). Its general resistance to corrosion is similar to AISI Type 316 but, because of its low carbon content, it has superior resistance to the formation of harmful carbides that contribute to intergranular corrosion. Its molybdenum content gives it greater resistance to pitting and makes the alloy suitable for uses where corrosive conditions are severe. Type 316L is used widely in many industries such as chemical, food, paper, textile, nuclear, and oil. 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, and surface treatment. Filing Code: SS-838. Producer or source: ALZ nv.
