316 stainless steel round bar

Superior quality 316 stainless steel round bar for unmatched performance

316 Stainless Round Bar

Types 316 and 316L of 316 Stainless Steel Round Bar Stock have superior corrosion resistance and are more resistant to heat.

They can also be easily molded and drawn because they are non-hardenable by heat treatment.

316 stainless steel has more Carbon than 316L stainless steel. The L stands for “low,” so it’s easy to remember. 316L, on the other hand, is nearly identical to 316 in practically every regard, although having less Carbon. Both are sturdy, corrosion-resistant, and a suitable choice for high-stress applications, and they cost about the same.
