316 & 316L Stainless Steel Flat Rolled Coil

Type 316L (UNS S31603) flat rolled coil stainless steel has an extra-low carbon content and is a variation of Type 316. The low carbon content is necessary for welding applications where avoiding carbide precipitation is key.

316/316L stainless steel flat rolled coil is mainly used in welding applications where corrosion resistance is a concern.

316 & 316L Stainless Steel Applications:

  • Welding Application

  • Chemical Industry

  • Paper Industry Equipment

  • Pharmaceutical Processing Equipment

316L Stainless Steel Magnetic Properties:

316L rolled coil stainless steel is a non-magnetic alloy that cannot be hardened by heat treatment.

316L Forming Ability:

Like most austenitic steels, Type 316L can be formed into most shapes. Re-annealing is recommended before each cold-forming operation.
