316L Stainless Steel

A fully austenitic, molybdenum-bearing, non-magnetic 316L stainless steel that maintains excellent performance at low and moderate temperatures, as well as superior ductility and mechanical performance.

A microscopic image showing a crystalline structure with polygonal grains and dark spots on a white background is displayed. The sample, made of 316L stainless steel, features a scale bar indicating 100 µm at the bottom right corner.

316L Stainless Steel

316L stainless steel is a weldable material that is extremely corrosion resistant, which makes it ideal for applications that will experience harsh environments. With excellent biocompatibility, high wear resistance and near wrought part density(98%), 3DEO’s stainless steel 3D printed components enable customers to produce quality components across a variety of industries and applications. 316L stainless steel is sometimes known as marine grade stainless steel or A4 stainless steel.
