Alloy 316/316L (UNS S31600/S31603) is a chromium nickelmolybdenum austenitic
stainless steel developed to provide improved corrosion resistance to Alloy
304/304L in moderately corrosive environments.
It is often utilized in process streams containing chlorides or halides. The
addition of molybdenum improves general corrosion and chloride pitting resistance.
It also provides higher creep, stresstorupture and tensile strength at elevated
It is common practice for 316L to be dual certified as 316 and 316L. The low
carbon chemistry of 316L combined with an addition of nitrogen enables 316L
to meet the mechanical properties of 316.
Alloy 316/316L resists atmospheric corrosion, as well as, moderately oxidizing
and reducing environments. It also resists corrosion in polluted marine
atmospheres. The alloyhas excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion
in the aswelded condition. Alloy 316/316L has excellent strength and toughness
at cryogenic temperatures.
Alloy 316/316L is nonmagnetic in the annealed condition, but can become slightly
magnetic as a result of cold working or welding. It can be easily welded and
processed by standard shop fabrication practices.
Alloys TP 316 and 316L are molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steels,
