The Ohio state government has recently issued orders that any business supporting manufacturing, distribution and supply chain for critical businesses shall remain open. As a result, Industrial Tube and Steel Corp. has been considered an “essential business” and will continue to distribute products normally through these difficult times.
316/316L Stainless Turned, Ground & Polished Precision Shafting is molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel. The higher nickel and molybdenum content in this grade allows it to demonstrate better overall corrosion resistant properties than 304, especially regarding pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. In addition, Alloy 316/316L provides excellent elevated temperature tensile, creep and stress-rupture strengths, as well as outstanding formability and weldability. 316L is the lower carbon version of 316 and is immune from sensitization; therefore, it is very frequently used in heavy gauge welded components.
