316L stainless steel ring hot forged, forged steel rings
316L Grade Stainless Steel is one of the more common austenitic
stainless steels. Because of its outstanding toughness against
corrosion, you can typically find 316L Stainless used in the
following applications: food preparation equipment, pharmaceutical,
marine, boat fittings, and medical implants (i.e- orthopaedic
Carbon .03%, Manganese 2.00%, Phosphorus .045%, Sulfur .030%,
Silicon .75%, Chromium 16-18.00%, Nickel 10.00-14.00%, Molybdenum

- 316L Stainless Steel is easily welded by all commercial processes.
If forging or hammer welding it is recommended to anneal after
these processes to help avoid unwarranted corrosion.
- Not hardenable by heat treatment, however often cold working the
alloy has proven to increase hardness and tensile strength.
- Sometimes know by industry professionals as marine grade stainless
for its uncanny ability to resist pitting corrosion.
Grade 316L is very similar to 316 stainless steel. It is still
considered a molybdenum-bearing grade and has properties that make
it highly resistant to corrosive degradation. 316L grade stainless
steel differs from 316 in that contain lower levels of carbon. The
decreased level of carbon in this stainless steel makes this grade
immune from sensitisation or grain boundary carbide precipitation.
Because of this unique property, Grade 316L tends to be commonly
used in heavy gauge welding situations. Additionally, the lower
carbon levels make this grade easier to machine. Like 316 stainless
steel, 316L because of its austenitic structure is extremely tough,
even in the most extreme of temperatures.
