  • 316 is resistant to dilute solutions (1-5%) of sulfuric acid to 49ºC (120ºF), except in some oxidising acids, where 316 is less resistant than 304.
  • 316 is susceptible to inter granular corrosion in the as-welded condition
  • 316 is prone to carbide precipitation from 427ºC to 816ºC (800ºF to 1500ºF)
  • Corrosion resistance can be restored by post-welding annealing
  • 316L offers same composition but with less than 0.03% carbon
  • 316L presents similar corrosion resistance and other characteristics as 316 but with added resistance to inter granular attack in the as-welded condition or with short exposures in the 427ºC to 816ºC (800ºF to 1500ºF) range
  • 316L is appropriate in applications where it’s impossible to avoid exposure in the carbide precipitation range and when post-welding annealing isn’t practical; lengthy exposure in this range may make the material brittle and susceptible to inter granular attack
  • 316 maximum temperature for scaling resistance is 899ºC (1650ºF) in continuous service and 816ºC (1500ºF) in intermittent service applications
  • 316L has a slightly lower pressure rating at very high temperatures compared to 316
  • Susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking
  • Slightly magnetic in the cold-worked condition
  • Nonmagnetic and non harden able in the annealed condition
  • Enhanced resistance to chlorides
