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.
