316 / 316L Sheets & Plates

316 Stainless Steel sheets are the second most widely used austenitic steel sheets. It has almost same physical & mechanical properties as304sheets  except the molybdenum content. It has around 2 to 3 percentage of molybdenum.

316 SS is extensively used in marine environments because it is highly resistant to pitting corrosion as compared to other steels.

316 grade steel is typically composed of 18% of chromium & 10% of Nickel.  In addition to molybdenum, it also contains other elements in varying concentrations.

Typical Composition of 316 SS:

Chromium: 16% to 18%
Nickel: 10% to 14% max
Molybdenum: 2% & to 3% max
Manganese:   2% max
Silicon: 0.75% max
Nitrogen: 0.1 max
Carbon:   0.08% max
Phosphorus: 0.045% max
Sulfur: 0.030% max
Iron: Balance

316L Stainless Steel Sheets have low carbon content  &  good immunity to sensitization which makes it most suitable for use in heavy gauge welded elements.

Typical composition 316L SS Sheet:

Chromium: 18% max
Nickel: 14% max
Molybdenum: 3% max
Manganese:   2% max
Silicon: 0.75% max
Nitrogen: 0.1 max
Carbon:   0.03% max
Phosphorus: 0.045% max
Sulfur: 0.030% max
Iron: Balance

316H SS is the higher carbon version of 316. It is useful for applications requiring elevated temperatures.It has great tensile and yield strength as well as exemplary toughness even at cryogenic temperatures.

316Ti Stainless Steel Sheets contain small amount of titanium typically around 0.5 %. This variant is used for elevated temperature applications due to its high carbon content.The major advantage is it can withstand higher temperature without sensitisation.

Typical composition 316Ti SS Sheet:

Chromium: 18.5% max
Nickel: 13.5% max
Molybdenum: 2.5% max
Manganese: 2% max
Silicon: 1% max
Carbon: 0.08% max
Phosphorus: 0.05% max
Sulfur: 0.03% max
Titanium: 0.40% – 0.70%
Iron: Balance
