Sidenor Stainless Steel 316 is austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel that is non-temperable and non-magnetic. It has good ductility even at low temperatures. It resists oxidation up to 875 ºC. The presence of Mo improves its resistance to corrosion in chlorine and non-oxidizing mediums in addition to increasing its mechanical resistance. This steel has a good degree of conformability in cold, and its hardening is greater than non-alloy steels, demanding larger conformation efforts. The scale that is present in hot conformation, in thermal treatment or in welding processes should be removed via pickling or machining to prevent jeopardizing the corrosion resistance. Intracrystalline corrosion resistance is up to 300 ºC. In its soluble state, it may present SLIGHT magnetism which increases with cold deformation.
