The stainless steel metal is the most used metal in this modern era. Properties like high durability, corrosion resistance, high temperature and high-pressure tolerance, low cost, and easy handling make stainless steel metal compatible for most of the metallic products such as stainless steel medical tools and equipment’s, parts of automobiles, storage containers, household utensils, etc. There are various products made from stainless steel such as stainless steel sheets, stainless steel coils, stainless steel pipes etc. Based on the composition and quality of stainless steel metal, there are various grades of stainless steel metal such as: grade 200 stainless steel series, grade 300 stainless steel series, grade 400 stainless steel series, etc.

300 stainless steel metal series:

 

Grade 300 stainless steel metal series is one of the most used series of stainless steel metal available in the market today. It is considered one of the most reliable metal series because of its rust proof nature. It contains different types of metals such as: Type 302, type 303, type 316, type 321, etc. 300 series of stainless steel metal is an alloy of chromium and nickel with maximum amount of chromium around 30% and nickel around 6%. 

Type 316 stainless steel metal of 300 series is considered heavy duty steel used in places which required high durability and corrosion resistance. Type 316 stainless steel metal can tolerate very high temperature and is also resistant to highly reactive metals such as chloride.

Property of 316 stainless steel metal

 

There are various important properties of type 316 stainless steel metal like:

    •   316 stainless steel metals is an austenitic stainless steel metal which means it is non-magnetic and have high corrosion resistance.
    •  316 stainless steel metals are also highly tolerable to even the most unfavorable marine conditions.
    •  316 stainless steel metals can also tolerate extremely high temperature they can tolerate temperature as high as 800 degree Celsius.
  •  316 stainless steel metals are also resistance to highly reactive chemicals.Use of 316 stainless steel metal

 

316 stainless metals get used for multiple purposes such as:

  • 316 stainless steel metals can tolerate extremely unfavorable marine conditions so it is highly used in the construction of submarine.
  • 316 stainless steel metal products are also used by automobiles industries in making frames of cars and heavy vehicles.
  • 316 stainless steel metals also make beams of cranes, bridges and frames of train carriages.
  • Due to the high temperature tolerance of 316 stainless steel metals are used in making jet engines.
  • 316 stainless steel metals can also tolerate high pressure and are used in formation of water pipes.
  • 316 stainless steel metals are used as chemical container due to their non-reactive chromium surface.    

Types of 316 stainless steel metal

Some commonly used types of 316 stainless steel metals are the L, F, N, and H types. Each of these variants is slightly different from each other as:

  • 316L variant is low carbon variant of 316 series stainless steel. It is less harder but can withstand marine environment without corrosion or rust.
  • 316F variant has high molybdenum content and thus it can withstand higher temperature without any loss in strength.
  • 316H variant is high carbon variant of 316 series stainless steel. It is much more harder and can withstand heavier loads due to better tensile strength.
