316/316L Stainless are strong, corrosion-resistant, and a good choice for high-stress applications.
Because the letter L stands for “low,” it’s simple to remember. 316L, on the other hand, is nearly identical to 316 in virtually every respect, except the presence of less carbon. Overall, both are strong, corrosion-resistant, and a good choice for high-stress applications, and they are about the same price as they are similar.
