Grade 316 Stainless Steel: Everything You Need to Know

Grade 316 Stainless Steel: Everything You Need to Know
01/11/2019

Stainless steel has multiple everyday applications, from car parts and architectural features to medical sterilisers and saucepans, with different grades of steel offering different features and benefits. There are dozens of different grades of stainless steel, the most common being grade 304, followed by grade 316.

304 vs. 316

On the surface, stainless steel grades 304 and 316 are incredibly similar in composition. Both are mostly composed of nickel and chromium, with 304 containing slightly more chromium and 316 slightly more nickel. 316 however, also contains around 2–3% molybdenum, and this small difference has a big impact in terms of their uses.
