What is Type 316 stainless steel?
16-18% chromium and 10-14% nickel
Type 316 stainless steel is an austenitic variant, recognized for its superior corrosion resistance due to the addition of molybdenum. This molybdenum content, typically around 2-3%, enhances its resilience against chloride corrosion compared to Type 304 stainless steel. It also contains 16-18% chromium and 10-14% nickel, providing excellent formability and weldability.
Type 316 is frequently employed in environments with high salt and acid concentration, like marine applications, chemical processing, and pharmaceutical equipment. While it offers high-temperature strength, it's not as heat-resistant as higher grade stainless steels. Type 316, hence, combines durability, aesthetic appeal, and enhanced resistance, making it a preferred choice in harsh environments.
