ANCOR AM 316L
is a gas atomized stainless steel powder containing chromium,
nickel and molybdenum. The material has an austenitic microstructure and is used in applications requiring superior resistance
to intergranular corrosion. It has moderate tensile and high creep
strengths at elevated temperatures. Parts made from 316L are
generally limited to service temperatures of 800° F (425° C ) above
which chromium carbides precipitate.
