316 Stainless Steel

Properties and characteristics

Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing austenitic grade of stainless steel. 

The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. 316 is used extensively in marine environments.
