316 Stainless Steel Plate

From heavy rains and massive swells to salty air and corrosive chemicals, maritime and processing environments regularly encounter harsh conditions at sea and onshore. Better protect your application from degradation with high-quality 316 stainless steel plate from Dix Metals.

316 stainless steel plate is an austenitic alloy with increased nickel and molybdenum content that demonstrates superior corrosion-resistant properties. Additionally, it provides excellent elevated temperature tensile, creep and stress-rupture strength capabilities, as well as outstanding formability and weldability. This material type has lower carbon content than other alloys, making it very popular for heavy-gauge welded applications.
