Grade 316 stainless steel sheet


316L stainless steel sheet metal, also called marine grade stainless steel, is used primarily for its increased resistance to corrosion. The "L" means that the carbon content of the alloy is below 0.03% which makes the 316L stainless steel sheet preferable for welding. 316/316L stainless steel coil and sheet is part of the austenitic family of stainless steel. 316 grades contain a higher level of Nickel than 304 giving it an improved corrosion resistance over 304 grades. 316/316L stainless steel coil and sheet is part of the austenitic family of stainless steel. 316 grades contain a higher level of Nickel than 304 giving it an improved corrosion resistance over 304 grades. 316L stainless steel sheet metal, also called marine grade stainless steel, is used primarily for its increased resistance to corrosion.
