Stainless Steel 316H Flats Angles

Stainless Steel 316H is a high carbon version of the Stainless Steel 316 alloy. It contains an increased carbon content, which enhances its high-temperature strength and resistance to sensitization compared to Stainless Steel 316.
Stainless Steel 316H flats and angles are typically manufactured from Stainless Steel 316H and offer several key characteristics:
Composition of Stainless Steel 316H:

  • Carbon (C): 0.04% – 0.10%
  • Chromium (Cr): 16% – 18%
  • Nickel (Ni): 10% – 14%
  • Molybdenum (Mo): 2% – 3%
  • Manganese (Mn): 2% maximum
  • Silicon (Si): 0.75% maximum
  • Phosphorus (P): 0.045% maximum
  • Sulfur (S): 0.03% maximum

Properties and Characteristics:

  • High-Temperature Strength: Stainless Steel 316H flats and angles are designed to maintain good mechanical strength and structural stability at elevated temperatures.
  • Corrosion Resistance: They offer excellent corrosion resistance in various environments, including acidic, alkaline, and chloride-containing conditions.
  • Resistance to Sensitization: The higher carbon content in 316H helps to minimize sensitization, a condition that can lead to intergranular corrosion in certain environments.
  • Weldability: Stainless Steel 316H flats and angles have good weldability, although it is recommended to use low heat input during welding to avoid potential sensitization.
  • Formability and Fabrication: They can be easily formed, machined, and fabricated into desired shapes for different applications.

Applications: Stainless Steel 316H flats and angles find applications in various industries and sectors, including:

  • Chemical processing plants
  • Petrochemical industries
  • Power generation facilities
  • High-temperature equipment and components
  • Heat exchangers and boilers
  • Marine and coastal applications
  • Architectural and construction projects
  • Food processing and pharmaceutical industries
