What Is Different Between 316 And 316L?

What is different between 316 and 316L?



1) 316 is not resistant to intergranular corrosion and 316L is resistant to intergranular corrosion. That is, when there is no air, the 316L has a better resistance to corrosion than the 316 materials, such as internal seawater and internal solution.


2) The corrosion resistance of 316L is worse than 316, but the mechanical properties are not as good as 316.


3) Do not use 316 stainless steel continuously in the high temperature range of 800-1575 ° C. 316L stainless steel can be used continuously.
