316 / 316L Stainless Welded Tubing
Many industries operate in challenging environments, from extreme temperatures to intense corrosion. Overcome these harsh conditions with resilient 316 and 316L stainless steel welded tubing from Stainless Tubular Products.
316 stainless steel and its lower-carbon sister grade, 316L, are versatile and high-strength alloys suitable for both general-purpose and high-performance applications. These austenitic stainless steels have higher amounts of nickel and molybdenum and demonstrate better overall corrosion resistance, including pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. Here are the supplementary performance characteristics of these materials.
- High strength
- Good weldability and machineability
- Good formability
- Effective in acidic environments
- Designated as marine-grade stainless steel
- Aesthetically pleasing appearance
- Easy to clean
- Low-temperature performance
