Stainless Steel

Like steel,

Stainless Steel

Most of the steel is made up of carbon and iron. Stainless steel has at least 10.5% chromium. This metallic element gives stainless steel a great finish and is highly resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel is well-suited for long-term applications where it will be exposed to elements, moisture and possibly corrosive chemical. Because of the lower risk of contamination, stainless steel is ideal in sensitive industries such food preparation and pharmaceuticals.

Different grades of stainless-steel may also contain trace amounts.

Stainless steel class 304

Uses up to 35% of nickel in plumbing, hardware, and appliances.

Grade 316

Molybdenum is a key component of 316 steel, making it ideal to use in marine equipment, pharmaceutical equipment and commercial kitchen equipment. You can find 316L and 316L in a variety of 316 Steel.

316L stainless Steel

It contains less carbon, molybdenum and steel than 316 steel. This gives them different properties.

Differences between 316L Stainless Steel and 316L Stainless Steel



Component has a lower percentage of carbon. Carbon content must not exceed 0.3% in order to comply with 316L stainless-steel requirements. This reduces the chance of carbon deposition making it a better choice when welding is required to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.

The carbon content

316 stainless Steel

The molybdenum content in this product is between 2% – 3%. This improves resistance against corrosion, acid elements, high temperatures, and other factors.

Both materials exhibit excellent ductility which allows them to perform well in bending and stretching as well as deep drawing and spinning.

How to choose between 316L and 316L Stainless Steel?

These are the factors that you should consider when making a decision about whether to use 316L or 361 stainless steel.

Corrosion resistance

316L is the best choice in high-corrosion and high temperature applications. 316L is less carbon-rich than 316 so it has better resistance to intergranular corrosion. It also doesn’t have the same decay rate as 316 stainless.


316L stainless Steel has a lower carbon percentage than 316L. However, the cost of 316L and316L stainless steel are almost equal.


316 stainless-steel has a very low magnetic field response. Many stainless steels (including 316), are austenitic, or nonmagnetic, unlike ferromagnetic stainless steel.

Certain 316 stainless-steel products can be subject to cold forming and welding. This transforms the austenite’s crystal structure into ferromagnetic martensite. It is easier for 316L steel to attain a degree of magnetic properties.

Practical applications

Both types can be used for a wide range of industries. Due to its strength, corrosion resistance, and pitting resistance, 316 is the most popular type of stainless steel. Because it can withstand welding, corrosive chemical and other conditions, 316L has become a favorite in photographic and pharmaceutical equipment.
