Description

AISI 316L is a molybdenum-alloyed austenitic chromium-nickel steel with improved machinability. The grade is used for a wide range of industrial applications where steels of types ASTM 304/304L have insufficient corrosion resistance. Round bar is supplied in solution annealed and peel turned condition.
