316 stainless steel 

316 stainless steel is an austenitic stainless steel. Due to the addition of Mo element, it has a great improvement in corrosion resistance and high temperature strength. It can withstand high temperatures up to 1200-1300 degrees and can be used under harsh conditions.

316 is resistant to certain types of interactions. There is a variety of different types of 316 stainless steels, including 316 L, F, N, H, and several others. Each is slightly different, and each is used for different purposes. The "L" designation means 316L steel has less carbon than 316 steel.

Annealing is carried out at a temperature ranging from 850 to 1050 C, followed by rapid annealing and then rapid cooling. 316 stainless steel cannot be hardened by heat treatment

316 and 316L

316 stainless steel is generally used in corrosive environments, as well as medical equipment and household items ,316 stainless steel has more carbon in it than 316L. This is easy to remember, as the L stands for "low." But even though it has less carbon, 316L is very similar to 316 in almost every way. Cost is very similar, and both are durable, corrosion-resistant, and a good choice for high-stress situations.

316L, however, is a better choice for a project that requires a lot of welding because 316 is more liable than 316L to weld decay, though 316 can be annealed to resist weld decay. 316L also is a great stainless steel for high-temperature, high-corrosion uses, which is why it's so popular for use in construction and marine projects.

Neither 316 nor 316L is the cheapest options. 304 and 304L are similar but lower-priced. And neither are as durable as 317 and 317L, which have higher molybdenum content and are better for overall corrosion resistance.
