316L stainless steel is the low carbon version of 316 and is immune from sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation).

316L stainless steel is extensively used in heavy gauge welded components (over about 6mm). There is commonly no appreciable price difference between 316 and 316L stainless steel.

316L stainless steel Chemistry % by Weight

Fe 62.045-72%
Cr 16-18%
Ni 10-14%
Mo 2-3%
Mn 2%
N 0.1%
S 0.03%
C 0.03%
Si 0.75%
P 0.045%

Compared to chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steels, 316L stainless steel offers higher creep, stress to rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures.

What does the L mean?

L-grades have 0.03% carbon maximum. L-grades are resistant to sensitization in short-term exposures or heat treatments. L-grade often have slightly lower (typically 5,000 psi less) minimum strengths than standard stainless steels.

Most standard grades of stainless steel have 0.08% maximum carbon and are suitable for use in non-welded parts and equipment; in case of welded applications these parts are used for light-gauge applications
