316 L || 1.4404
Stainless austenitic chromium-nickel-molybdenum steel with low carbon content
The material 316 L is a stainless austenitic chromium-nickel-molybdenum steel which has low carbon content and a better resistance to corrosion than molybdenum-free products. 316 L is very malleable when cold and can be welded well. The material is applied especially in the chemical, paper and textile industries, also in the production of pipes, in apparatus engineering as well as for sanitary facilities.
