316 Stainless Steel

316 Stainless steel is second only to Type 304 in total production.

Type 316 has almost the same physical and mechanical properties as 304 stainless steel, and contains a similar material make-up.  The difference being the addition of 2 to 3 percent molybdenum.  This addition gives Type 316 corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides and other industrial solvents. 

We can supply Type 316  in sheets/plates. bars and angles.  Get in touch with us for the best prices.
