Use T316 stainless steel metric round bar for applications that require strong corrosive resistance. T316 stainless steel is suitable for applications involving severe corrosive conditions such as use in the chemical industries and marine atmospheres. This grade of stainless may become slightly magnetic when cold worked. 316/316L is available in rounds, squares, rectangles, sheet and plate.
|Ultimate Tensile Strength
|Machinability and Weldability
Machinability is rated at 36% of B1112. Average cutting speed 60 ft/min. Easily welded by all commercial processes except forge or hammer welding. Annealing is recommended after forging to maintain maximum corrosion resistance. 316/316L can be forged between 2100Â°-2300Â° F. Do not forge below 1700Â° F.
