316 / 316L Channel

316 / 316L Channel

Characteristics

316 / 316L stainless steel channel is used for applications that require extreme corrosion resistance and resistance to surface pitting.  Due to a higher molybdenum and nickel content than 304 alloys, 316 stainless steel provides superior corrosion and surface pitting resistance. These alloys are also high strength, tough and machinable.

Applications

316 / 316L channel is used for applications that require superior corrosion resistance, including salt water, marine, petrochemical, chemical, acid and waste water processing applications. Products include structural supports, braces, frames and raceways for equipment, machinery and tank supports,  enclosures and housings.
