Spherical powder 316L

proszek sferyczny 316L

Stainless steel 316L spherical powder

316L (UNS S31603 / 1.4404) is an 18/8 austenitic stainless steel with an addition of 2.5% Molybdenum, to provide superior corrosion resistance
to type 304 stainless steel. 316L has improved pitting corrosion resistance and has excellent resistance to sulphates, phosphates and other salts.

316L has better resistance than standard 18/8 types to sea water, reducing acids and solution of chlorides, bromides and iodies.
Type 316/316L has been used in handling many chemicals used by the process industries, including pulp and paper, textile, food, pharmaceutical, medical, and other chemical processing.
