Alternative Designations: X2CrNiMo17-12-2 (ISO) | 316L (AISI/SAE) | S31603 (UNS) | Z2CND17.12 (AFNOR) | 316S12 (BS) | 2343/2348/2553 (SIS) | X2CrNiMo1712 (UNI) | SUS316 (JIS)
It is an austenitic chromium-nickel alloy that contains molybdenum and nitrogen. This combination of elements makes it durable and provides it with a number of other desirable properties. The addition of molybdenum results in improved corrosion resistance with good stability against chloric and non-oxidizing acid. It has good heat resistance which reduces in continuous use at 425 – 861°C in water. It can be readily formed into different products. It has good machinability and is used in food processing equipment, boat fittings, bolts, nuts, and springs.
Good heat resistance • Corrosion resistance • High weldability
