Stainless Steel - Austenitic - 1.4404 (316L) Sheet and Plate

316L, the low carbon version of 316 stainless steel, is immune to grain boundary carbide precipitation (sensitisation). This makes it suited to use in heavy gauge (over about 6mm) welded components.

Possible alternative grades to 316 stainless steel.

GradeWhy it might be chosen instead of 316?

317L

Higher resistance to chlorides than 316L, but with similar resistance to stress corrosion cracking.


Benefits of using Type 316L Stainless Steel

Benefits of using 316L stainless steel include:

  • Low carbon content eliminates carbon precipitation in the welding process

  • Can be used in severe corrosive environments

  • Improved anti–corrosion scope due to added Molybdenum

  • Weld annealing only required in high stress applications

  • Very similar to Grade 316 in chemical composition and mechanical properties
