Stainless Steel Round 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.




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.
