The 316L Stainless Steel Plate is a low carbon variation of the 316 stainless steel, specifically designed to offer enhanced corrosion resistance, superior strength, and excellent weldability. It is a versatile and widely used stainless steel material in various industries.
Chemically, the 316L Stainless Steel Plate has a similar composition to the standard 316 stainless steel, with 16% to 18% chromium, 10% to 14% nickel, and 2% to 3% molybdenum. The low carbon content, typically around 0.03% or lower, helps to minimize carbide precipitation during welding and reduces the risk of sensitization to intergranular corrosion.
The 316L Stainless Steel Plate offers exceptional corrosion resistance, making it suitable for applications in corrosive environments such as chemical processing, marine environments, and medical equipment. It provides excellent resistance to a wide range of corrosive media, including acids, alkalis, and chloride solutions.
Mechanically, the 316L Stainless Steel Plate retains the excellent strength, formability, and ductility of the 316 grade. It can be easily formed, bent, and fabricated using common techniques such as cutting, welding, and machining. It is also highly weldable and does not require post-weld annealing to restore corrosion resistance.
The 316L Stainless Steel Plate is known for its hygienic properties, making it suitable for applications in the food and beverage industry. Its smooth surface finish facilitates easy cleaning and maintenance, while its durability ensures long-lasting performance.
In summary, our 316L Stainless Steel Plate is a reliable and corrosion-resistant material that offers excellent weldability and mechanical properties.
