Like its 304 grade counterpart, 316 stainless steel is non-magnetic and will not harden under heat treatment. With a welding groove width smaller 0.3mm respectively 0.1mm product thickness the use of filler metals is not neccessary. After pickling a carefully flushing with water has to be done. /MediaBox [0 0 595 841] Warm seawater can corrode the surface of 316 grade marine parts over time, leaving the finish stained brown and rough. • Mechanical properties of stainless steels (flat products) • Physical properties of stainless steels The attached collection of data reflects inquiries directed to stainless steel development associations. The included angle should be 60° - 70°, when using MIG-welding about 50° are enough. The corrosion resistance of molybdenum-bearing 316L austenitic steel is particularly effective in chloride-ion environments. >> The chemical composition of stainless steel 316 is almost identical to that of the 304 grade. Modulus of Elasticity (E) The information, we give on for advice, comply to the experiences of the manufacturer as well as our own. Bellwood, IL 60104 1.4401 is very suitable for laser beam fusion cutting with nitrogen or flame cutting with oxygen. Printable PDF: 316L Stainless Steel Alloy Data sheet. << 316 stainless steel was once the main choice for medical implants. 3 0 obj 28.0 x 103 ksi in tension / (193 x 103MPa in tension), Coefficient of Expansion It has excellent drawdown workability and holds a better strength at higher temperatures than the 304 grade. The stainless steel 316L can be supplied in a variety of forms, including sheet, bar, plate, rod, and tube. We cannot give warranty for the results of processing and application of the products. Type 316L is an extra-low carbon version of Type 316 that minimizes harmful carbide precipitation due to welding. Annealing colours, scales, slag residues, tramp iron, spatters and such like have to be removed, in order to not destroy the passive layer. endobj /Resources 17 0 R 316 stainless steel has more carbon in it than 316L. This data sheet applies to stainless steel 316 / 1.4401 hot and cold-rolled sheets/plates and strip, semi-finished products, rods, rolled wire and profiles as well as seamless and welded tubes and pipes for pressure purposes. The molybdenum in 316L stainless steel also protects it against aggressive, acidic environments. To avoid overheating or burn-through of thinner sheets, higher welding speed has to be applied. These days titanium, which offers better biocompatibility, is preferred. The resistance to intergranular corrosion is guaranteed for larger product thicknesses in the welded condition. Another widely used austenitic steel is 316 and 316L stainless steel, the corrosion performance of SS 304 is not enough, 316L is often consider as the first alternate. Also, 316 stainless steel contains between 2 – 3% molybdenum to give it its chloride-fighting properties. As with 304 and 304L, the difference between the 316 and 316L grades is the quantity of carbon contained. /ProcSet [/PDF /Text] When welding 1.4401 all procedures, which work against this distortion (eg. A preheating is not necessary for this steel. /Kids [3 0 R 4 0 R 5 0 R 6 0 R 7 0 R 8 0 R 9 0 R 10 0 R 11 0 R 12 0 R 13 0 R 14 0 R 15 0 R] It may not seem like a big difference, but it means that L grade versions of stainless steel alloys suited better for the larger welding projects. You’ll also find it used for chemical processing and laboratory equipment, condensers, and evaporators. /Length 4630 mechanical properties offered by the various classifications and grades within the FAMILY of STAINLESS STEEL render them extremely versatile mate-rials. /Annots 16 0 R An accumulation of weld seams should be avoided. In this article the significance of these different properties will be covered with a view to enabling a fuller and better appreciation of the vast amount of pub-lished data which is available. >> Austenitic steels only have 30% of the thermal conductivity of non-alloyed steels. 316 is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel containing molybdenum. endobj /Type /Catalog /Count 13 /Type /Pages >> Stainless steel is generally suitable for many processing and related industries, but 316 stainless steel is unique. The following tables show AISI 316 grade stainless steel mechanical properties such as yield strength, tensile strength, elongation and hardness, etc. In connection with a worse thermal conductivity, a greater distortion has to be expected. << Phone: Carbon Steel, Red Metals, and Other Punched Circles. 316 stainless steel offers superior protection against hydrochloric, acetic, tartaric and sulfuric acids. With larger welding grooves a similar filler metal can be used. 17 0 obj In addition to the above, we also have datasheets that detail the mechanical properties and chemical composition of the following stainless steel grades. stream strength properties, the Types 316, 316L, 317 and 317L Cr-Ni-Mo alloys also provide the excellent fabricability and formability which are typical of the austenitic stainless steels. The lower Carbon content of L grades reduces cracking in the heat affected zones of welds and improved weld quality. Common applications include pressure vessels, heat exchangers, exhaust manifolds and food preparation equipment. For a little extra cost, 316L stainless steel offers greater strength and durability in chloride-ion environments than the 304 grade. This makes it ideal for food processing and paper handling operations. endobj As such, the food and beverage industries are major customers. 1.4401 is very suitable for laser beam welding (weldability A 9in accordance with DVS bulletin 3203, part 3). back-step sequence welding, welding alternately on opposite sides with double-V butt weld, assignment of two welders when the components are accordingly large) have to be respected notably. properties of stainless steels Type 304L and Type 316L are given for temperatures from 300 to 3000 K. The properties in the solid region were obtained by extrapolating available experimental data to the melting range, while appropriate correlations were used to estimate these properties in the liquid region. 1 0 obj helum as inert gas, the welding seam is as corrosion resistant as the base metal. /Font 19 0 R In quenched condition the material can be slightly magnetizable. endobj /Pages 2 0 R For brushing only stainless steel brushes can be used. The molybdenum component prevents chloride ions pitting the and crevassing the surface of the steel. /Parent 2 0 R Information given in this data sheet about the condition or usability of materials respectively products are no warranty for their properties, but act as a description. This grade also resists corrosion from de-icing salts added to the roads. 29.4 μ / (74 μ, Thermal Conductivity Cost is very similar, and both are durable, corrosion-resistant, and a good choice for high-stress situations. With increasing cold forming the magnetizability increases. As with the 304 grade, 316 stainless steel owes much of its corrosion resistance to its chromium content. 316L Stainless Steel INDUSTRIAL GRADE MATERIALS FOR 3D PRINTING Revised 8/19/19 Note: Typical expected properties. xڥ\Yo9�~7����J+�7��݆gֻ��hi���TJ�j'U��*���~"xYgca�N~�`Fɸ�4�b��_������o������Z�u�\!����H �@Lx0�Rt�����_���o�v^��@���,� yu���_�����onX�.
