This grain structure forms when a sufficient quantity of nickel is added to the alloy—8 to 10 percent in a standard 18 percent chromium alloy. In addition to being non-magnetic, austenitic stainless steels are not heat treatable. They can be cold worked to improve hardness, strength, and stress resistance, however.
316L Stainless Steel 316L, the low carbon version of S tainless stee l 316 , is immune to grain boundary carbide precipitation (sensitisation). This makes it suited to use in heavy gauge (over about 6mm) welded components.

To illustrate this, the next micrograph, Figure D, shows AlSl 316L stainless steel electrolytically etched with 60% nitric acid in water (Pt cathode, 0.8 V dc, 45 s). The grain boundaries are almost completely revealed but no twins are visible.
Saeidi et al. found that there was a high concentration of dislocation and enrichment of element Mo at the sub-grain boundaries . The SLM 316L SS with complicate interface structure has high potential to suffer from intergranular corrosion (IGC).
The “stained glass” grain structure of 3D printed stainless steel. Samples in the LLNL study are made using Concept Laser’s M2 Cusing machine and the Fraunhofer L-PBF.
Grain growth has occurred along the surface of this low-carbon steel specimen. Another segregated form of a duplex condition is the so-called "necklace" type, as shown in Figure C. This is from a highly alloyed stainless steel where fine re-crystallized grains surround the large non-recrystallized grains.
Qualities of Type 316L Steel. Type 316L stainless steel is an extra-low carbon version of the 316 steel alloy. The lower carbon content in 316L minimizes deleterious carbide precipitation as a result of welding. Consequently, 316L is used when welding is required in order to …
Qualities of Type 316L Steel. Type 316L stainless steel is an extra-low carbon version of the 316 steel alloy. The lower carbon content in 316L minimizes deleterious carbide precipitation as a result of welding. Consequently, 316L is used when welding is required in order to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.
Stainless Steel // Austenitic - 316H. The titanium atoms stabilise the structure of the 316 at temperatures over 800°C. This prevents carbide precipitation at the grain boundaries and protects the metal from corrosion. The main advantage of 316Ti is that it can be held at higher temperatures for a longer period without sensitisation (precipitation)...
316/316L is the most commonly used austenitic stainless steel in the chemical process industry. The addition of molybdenum increases general corrosion resistance, improves chloride pitting resistance and strengthens the alloy in high temperature service. Through the controlled addition of nitrogen it is common for 316/316L to meet...
*Two microstructure features of an austenitic stainless steel, affecting its performance, are grain size and shape. *The recommended grain size for 316L is 100 µm or less.

1. Introduction. 316L stainless steel was widely applied as industrial instruments because of its favorable ductility and corrosion resistance .Unfortunately, the relatively low yield strength may make it unsuitable for many structural applications.
The thesis focuses on exploring the sub-grain structure in stainless steel 316L prepared by additive manufacturing (AM). Two powder-bed based AM methods are involved selective laser melting (SLM) and electron beam melting (EBM).
Hydrogen ions are small enough to penetrate the grain structure of 17-4 pH stainless steel, thus breaking down the diaphragm over time as a result of embrittlement. For ultra-high purity applications such as semiconductor process equipment, 316L VAR (Vacuum Arc Melting) material is introduced to reduce non-metallic impurities.
• As a result of this grain size refinement, excellent combinations of yield strength and elongation have been achieved to Types 304L, 316L, 301 and 301LN. • This investigation describes –the reversion in two metastable austenitic Cr-Mn stainless steels, namely 204Cu and 201.
AISI type 316 stainless steel is a widely used structural material in nuclear, chemical, fertilizer and many other industries. Selection of this steel for industrial applications is based on the good combination of mechanical and corrosion resistance properties.
µ in/in/°F µ m/m/°C. ATI 316Ti stainless is a single phase austenitic (face centered cubic) stainless steel at all temperatures up to the melting point. The alloy can not be hardened by heat treatment. The alloy is nonmagnetic in the annealed condition.
Austenitic stainless steel is the largest family of stainless steels, making up about two-thirds of all stainless steel production. They possess an austenitic microstructure, which is a face-centered cubic crystal structure.Corrosion resistance ·
