Cold rolled Stainless Steel Strip Coil 316/316L 1.4401/1.4404
Stainless grades 316 (1.4401) and 316 ( 1.4404 ), the most common grade which highlights the benefits
of molybdenum (Mo).
Mo enhances the corrosion resistance of stainless steel even in relatively small amounts.
1% of Mo is worth about 3% of Cr in terms of corrosion resistance.
In environments where stainless 304 (1.4301) is found to be inadequate, stainless 316 (1.4401) is the natural
first grade to be considered.
Typical environments where 316 (1.4401) stainless is used are high chloride (saline, coastal), heavy urban,
acidic, high temperature solutions.
Like all austenitic stainless steels, 316 (1.4401) has good welding and forming characteristics.
316L ( 1.4404 ) stainless is the lower carbon type of stainless 316 ( 1.4401 ).
Typical applications which demonstrate the improved corrosion resistance of 316(1.4401) include:
Pharmaceutical plant, chemical processing, offshore oil and gas platform topside equipment,
architectural applications in urban and coastal conditions, food processing, water treatment, pressure vessels,
transport containers, swimming pool fittings and fixtures, marine structures, yacht fittings, laboratory equipment, heat exchangers.
