316 Stainless Steel Square is an austenitic chromium nickel steel square bar containing molybdenum which provides superior corrosion resistance and increased strength at elevated temperatures when compared to 304 Stainless. Widely known as a food grade stainless or marine grade, 316 Stainless is ideally suited for corrosion resistance against a wide range of chemical and acidic corrodents, and marine environment applications. Typical uses of 316 Stainless includes food production, pharmaceutical equipment, furnace parts, heat exchangers, valves and pumps, chemical equipment, and parts for marine use. Primarily offered in a lower carbon, dual grade 316/316L for increased machinability and added corrosion resistance when welded.
316 Stainless is moderate to weld, cut, form and machine with the proper equipment. Metals Depot stocks a wide size assortment of 316 Stainless Steel Square Bars that you can buy online in ready to ship precut or mill lengths or order just what you need custom cut to size in small or large quantity.
