316 Stainless Steel Plate and sheet

Resists Corrosion

316 stainless steel plate is excellent for harsh environment applications, including marine, chemical and industrial. High-quality 316 stainless steel plate from TCI Precision Metals is designed to hold up. TCI Precision Metals is a value-added stainless steel distributor; we source mill-direct and process materials to your exact specifications, delivering Machine-Ready Blanks that are ready to go from receiving directly into your machining centers. 

316 stainless steel plate is an austenitic alloy with increased nickel and molybdenum content that demonstrates superior corrosion-resistant properties. It provides excellent high temperature tensile, creep and stress-rupture strength, 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.
