316 Stainless Steel - All You Need to Know

With rapid economic growth, the applications of 316 stainless steel plates become widely. Our daily life is closely related to stainless steel, but many people do not know much about the performance and maintenance of stainless steel. The most commonly used stainless steel grade is 304 and 316. The main difference between the two in chemical composition is that 316 contains molybdenum, and it is widely agreed that 316 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance than 304 at high temperatures. Therefore, 316 stainless steel parts are usually used in high-temperature operating environments.

Due to the addition of molybdenum elements, corrosion resistance and high-temperature strength of 316 stainless steel have been greatly improved. Its high-temperature resistance can reach 1200-1300 degrees, and it can be used under harsh conditions. 316 Stainless steel plate is typically used in marine and highly acidic environments, underwater equipment, surgical tools, food, and pharmaceutical applications.
