316 Stainless Steel

316 stainless steel is an austenitic chrome nickel steel with superior corrosion resistance to that of other chrome nickel steels. This stainless steel is ideal for applications where exposure to chemical corrodents, as well as marine environments are a concern. 316 Stainless steel is generally considered non-magnetic, but can become magnetic when cold worked.
