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.
