What is ASTM A240 Type 316L?

In ASTM A240, type 316 and 316L is a chromium nickel austenitic steel, Element molybdenum addition can enhances corrosion resistance of stainless steel, which is the main factor that 316/316l is more corrosion resistant than 304/304l.

What’s the difference between 316 and 316L?

316L stainless steel is almost identical to 316. The only difference is the carbon content. 316L’s lower carbon content imparts even better corrosion resistance than 316. 316L does not require post-weld annealing.

How thick is 316L stainless steel?

Stainless Steel Plate – Type 316L

Item # Thickness Thickness
316L-500-96 1/2 inches 0.500 inches12.7 mm
316L-625-96 5/8 inches 0.625 inches15.875 mm
316L-750-96 3/4 inches 0.750 inches19.05 mm
316L-1000-96 1 inches 1.000 inches25.4 mm

Is 304 or 316 stainless steel stronger?

There is little difference between alloys when it comes to strength, but corrosion resistance is where the 316 truly surpasses the 304.

How can you tell the difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel?

Aesthetically, there is no difference between the two; in fact, the only way to differentiate between them is to test them chemically. The main difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel is 316 SS has the addition of molybdenum.

What is SA means in ASME?

If an ASTM material specification has been adopted by ASME, an “S” is added to the designation. The SA (SA-106) means it is a ferrous material specification from ASTM, that has been adopted for Code use by ASME. THis is important to note for material applications on any ASME/National Board Code project.

What is the ASTM specification for 316l stainless steel?

Grade 316 stainless steel plate has a minimum tensile strength of 75 ksi and a yield strength at 0.2% of 30 ksi. 316 stainless steel plate has a 40% elongation. On the Brinell hardness scale 316 stainless steel plate has a hardness of 217 and a Rockwell B hardness of 95.

What is the ASTM specification for 316L stainless steel?

What does ASTM A240 mean?

304 and 304L ASTM A240 stainless steel plate is a standard 18-8 material – meaning it contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. 304 Stainless steel plate is one of the most versatile stainless steel materials available. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics.
