316 and 316L stainless steel are a molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel. 316 series stainless steel contains more nickel compared to 304 stainless steel which gives it a better corrosions resistance compared to 300 series stainless steel. 316 stainless steel can withstand such harsh environments while being exposed to water (fresh and sea), chloride corrosion, and other chemicals such as sulfuric, phosphoric and acetic acids. It also offers good strength and creep resistance while being exposed to subzero temperatures while still maintain mechanical and corrosion resistances.
Nominal Composition in Percentage:
We carry 316 hex bolts in both a hex cap screw and a hex tap bolt (full thread). We start at ¼-20 thread and can do special large diameters up to 3”. We carry both fine and course thread hex bolts. We also carry A4 stainless steel which is the equivalent of 316 stainless steel in metric hex bolts.
