Product Description

316 Stainless Steel Tubing

316 Stainless Steel Tubing

Part of the austenitic family of stainless steel, both 316L and 316 stainless steel tubing contain slightly more nickel than T304/304L, as well as 2-3% molybdenum. This allows for better corrosion resistance than T304, especially in environments that tend to cause pitting. It is widely used in the chemical processing industries.
