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.
Meets ASTM A582
