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.

316L rolled coil stainless steel is a non-magnetic alloy that cannot be hardened by heat treatment.
Like most austenitic steels, Type 316L can be formed into most shapes. Re-annealing is recommended before each cold-forming operation.
