Stainless steel 316/316L
Material type: Metal, Corrosion resistant, Chemical resistant, High strength, Heat resistant, Non-magnetic
The second most used stainless steel after 304, the general purpose austenitic stainless steel 316 has superior corrosion resistance particularly in chloride containing environments and good elevated temperature strength. The low carbon version 316L has even better corrosion resistance in welded structures.

Material advantages
SUS316 stainless steel has good plasticity, toughness, cold denaturation, and welding process performance. 316 has good high temperature strength, and 316L has poor high temperature performance, but its corrosion resistance is better than 316.
