Stainless Steel Hex Bar 316/316L Cold Finished

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. This grade is non-magnetic and not hardenable by any heat treatment. increase in hardness and strength can be achieve by cold working.


AMS 5648
AMS 5653


Widely used in paper, textile, and chemical industries where parts are subject to corrosive effect of salts and reducing acids. Although not stabilized at very high temperatures its reasonable fatigue and tensile properties at elevated temperatures make it useful in some aircraft applications. Lower Magnetic Permeability makes it attractive for some instrument applications. Used in food and manufacture of pharmaceuticals because minimal metallic contamination.
