316 Stainless Steel Sheet
Product Display & Application
316 Stainless Steel Sheet/Plate (UNS S31600) and 316L Stainless Steel Sheet/Plate (UNS S31603) are molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steels, which are more resistant to general corrosion and pitting/crevice corrosion than the conventional chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steels such as Alloy 304. These alloys also offer higher creep, stress-to-rupture, and tensile strength at elevated temperatures. In addition to excellent corrosion resistance and strength properties, the Alloys 316 and 316L Cr-Ni-Mo alloys also provide excellent fabricability and formability which are typical of the austenitic stainless steels.
316 grades contain a higher level of Nickel than 304 giving it an improved corrosion resistance over 304 grades.

The internationally recognized crossover thickness between what is referred to as sheet and plate is 5.0mm. This is specified in ASTM A480M. Therefore, sheet is thickness less than 5.0mm and plate is 5.0mm and over.

Differences Between Hot Rolled and Cold Rolled:
Cold rolled stainless steel sheet has more accurate dimensional tolerances than that of hot rolled. Unless taking subsequent pickling or descaling treatment, hot rolled stainless steel sheet comes with a rough grey finish while cold rolled has a shinny whitish surface finish. From an economic view, cold rolled stainless steels are more expensive than hot rolled ones. Hot rolled has better ductility and malleability while cold rolled is harder and has more strength.
