Type 316 is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel. It also contains molybdenum which increases its general corrosion resistance as well as the mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. The properties of type 316 are similar to type 304; however 316 is stronger at elevated temperatures amd also corrosion resistance is improved particularly against sulphates, phosphates and other salts as well as reducing acids such as sulphuric, sulphurous and phosphoric.
Type 316L stainless steel in a molybdenum bearing austenitic. It is more resistant to general corrosion and pitting than conventional nickel chromium stainless steels such as 302-304. It has the following characteristics:
- Higher creep resistance
- Excellent formability.
- Rupture and tensile strength at high temperatures
- Corrosion and pitting resistance
