Stainless Steel Flat Bar 316/316L (True Bar)

Type 316/316L stainless is 304/304L modified with the addition of Molybdenum. This addition gives 316/316L better corrosion resistance in salt and seawater while improving strength at elevated temperatures. Increase in hardness and strength can be achieved by cold working. True bar implies a rolled bar product as opposed to being cut from sheet steel.




Widely used in pulp & paper, textile, and chemical industries where parts are subject to the corrosive effect of salts and reducing acids. Used in food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment, photographic equipment, nuclear reactor components and marine environment applications.
