Stainless Steel 316 Sheet and Plate also known as marine grade, the coils produced from austenitic stainless steel grade 316 offer resistance to not only corrosion but also pitting resistance in more aggressive environments, in comparison to grade 304. An attractive combination of its corrosion resistance properties along with good tensile strength makes the 316 Stainless Steel sheet an ideal alloy for applications involving salt water or marine engineering, acidic chemicals, as well as chloride containing media. Another aspect that makes the Stainless Steel 316 Plate, ASTM A240 Type 316 plates well suited for demanding applications is that these components are often surface treated with the following finishes i.e. finishes BA, etching, NO.1, 2B, 2D, NO.4, NO.8, 8K, checkered, mirror, embossed, hairline, sandblast, Brush, etc.
Stainless Steel 316 Sheet and Plate
SS 316 Coil
Applications of the ASME SA 240 Grade 316 alloy in the form of sheets, coils, plates and strips are well suited for use in not only the marine industry, but also industries such as chemical, textile, and food service equipment for e.g. stainless steel backsplash as well as the pulp and paper industry. Chromium-Nickel Stainless Steel like grade SS 316 Plate, Sheet, SS 316 Coil and SS 316 Strips manufactured according to the ASTM A240 are well suited to be used in the construction of pressure vessels and for General Applications. The Stainless Steel 316 Sheets, plates, strips or coils are often made in such a manner that their thickness could range anywhere 0.01 mm to about 200 mm.
