Hot Sale 316L Stainless Steel Flat Bar

316L is a stainless steel material brand, AISI 316L is the corresponding American label, SUS 316L is the corresponding Japanese label. China's uniform number code is S31603, the standard brand is 022Cr17Ni12Mo2 (new standard), the old brand is 00Cr17Ni12Mo2, indicating the main Cr, Ni, Mo, the number is probably contained in the percentage. The national standard is GB/T 20878-2007 (the current version).

Corrosion resistance


316L is widely used in the chemical industry due to its excellent corrosion resistance. 316L is also a derivative of 18-8 austenitic stainless steel, with 2 ~ 3% Mo element added. On the basis of 316L, many kinds of steel are also derived. For example, 316Ti is derived by adding a small amount of Ti, 316N is derived by adding a small amount of N, and 317L is derived by increasing the content of Ni and Mo.


The existing 316L in the market is mostly manufactured according to American standard. Due to cost considerations, steel mills generally put the Ni content of products as far as possible to the lower limit. According to the American standard, the Ni content of 316L is 10 ~ 14%, while that of daily standard is 12 ~ 15%. According to the minimum standard, there is a 2% difference in Ni content between the American standard and the Japanese standard, which is quite huge in price. Therefore, the customer still needs to see clearly whether the product should refer to ASTM or JIS standard when purchasing 316L products.


The Mo content of 316L makes the steel has excellent resistance to pitting corrosion and can be safely applied to the environment containing Cl- and other halogen ions. Since 316L is mainly used for its chemical properties, the steel mill has a slightly lower requirement on surface inspection of 316L (relative to 304), and customers with higher requirements on surface should strengthen surface inspection.


Stainless steel flat steel used in construction projects as Bridges, housing, fences, power transmission ships, vehicles and so on. The raw material of stainless steel flat steel is low carbon square billet, and the finished stainless steel flat steel is hot-rolled, cold-rolled or hot-rolled and delivered. When the transaction, the contract and other documents should be filled in the stainless steel flat steel side width, side thickness size complete, and other major process matters, such as annealing, solid solution, etc..


Type and specification


It is mainly divided into equal and unequal sides, which can be divided into square steel specifications with side length and thickness of the size. The current domestic specifications are 3mm*20m -- 150mm.


The order of import and export is generally based on the required specifications in use, and the steel number is the corresponding carbon steel number. That is, there is no specific component or performance series other than the specification number.


The delivery length of stainless steel flat steel can be divided into two types: length measurement scale and length measurement scale. The selection range of domestic length measurement is 3 -- 9m and 4 -- 12m respectively. The length selection range of Japanese length measurement is 6 -- 15m according to different specifications.
