Stainless Steel 316L

316L steel is an austenitic steel with an excellent mix of physical and mechanical properties combined with excellent chemical resistance. It is not magnetic and has lower electrical and thermal properties than other carbon steels.

  • Fantastic chemical resistance

  • Ease of production and processing similar to 304 steel

  • Higher cost than 304 steel

316L steel combines excellent mechanical properties and good workability with one of the best chemical resistances in the steel family. It has a lengthy resistance to most chemicals, salts and acids, as well as in challenging environments such as the marine environment. The chemical resistance also makes it compatible to be used in medical applications both instrumental and engineering.
