316 Stainless Steel Casting

316 Stainless Steel Casting

   316 stainless steel is an austenitic stainless steel. Due to the addition of Mo element, it has a great improvement in corrosion resistance and high temperature strength. It can withstand high temperatures up to 1200-1300 degrees and can be used under harsh conditions.Type 316 stainless steel castings provide improved mechanical properties at higher temperatures.

  316 grade stainless steel is the second-most common material of stainless steel casting after 304.It has almost the same physical and mechanical properties as same as 304 stainless steel. And contains a similar material make-up.

  Type 316 stainless steel castings are a upgrade of Type 304 stainless steel.The main difference is that 316 stainless steel contents about 2 to 3 % molybdenum. So the 316 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance due to the Mo element.The addition increases corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides and other industrial solvents. So cost of 316 stainless steel casting is slightly higher than 304 stainless steel casting.

  It is usually used to make the corrosion-resistant parts that contact the seawater or corrosive chemical mediums, such as valve castings, chemical equipment, outdoor lamp, medical apparatus part, marine hardware, thermal exchanger part, pipe, etc. Equivalent Grade of Stainless Steel 316 is the CF-8M of the US, or 1.4408 of the German.
