Stainless Steel 316 is a higher corrosion resistance than Types 302 and 304 with high creep strength. It has improved high temperature strength over 304 and shows excellent resistance to pitting. Grade 316 is non-magnetic in the annealed condition.
Stainless Steel 316L is an extra-low-carbon modification of Type 316. It has low sensitization properties. Type 316 applications are typically those that require extensive welding.
316 pump shaft quality bar is manufactured with special surface finish, close diameter tolerance, controlled mechanical properties and precision straightness.
