316 stainless steel consists of 16% chromium and 10% nickel. It also contains 2% molybdenum. One of the most important features of 316 quality stainless steel is the extra corrosion resistance provided by molybdenum. It also has resistance to high temperatures.
316 quality stainless steel has a low carbon feature. It shows superior performance in the focus of weldability. Thus, it provides ease of use and saves time. 316 stainless steel, which has extremely high pitting corrosion resistance, transforms into a more resistant form against temperature with the addition of Mo.
316 quality stainless steel is frequently used in the columns and bases of operating tables due to its corrosion resistance, high heat resistance, and minimum corrosion rate.
