Laser cut 316 stainless steel to strengthen your next project

With high amounts of nickel and chromium and a lower carbon count than other stainless varieties, 316 is highly corrosion resistant. Able to remain corrosion resistant across many different environments makes this steel an important material in modern industries.

Our 316 stainless steel is very similar to 304 in application, but this material differs in one major area: corrosion resistance. By alloying molybdenum into its composition, 316 circumvents 304’s common pitfalls when it comes to rusting. Specifically, 316 is adept at resisting corrosion caused by chloride exposure. This means that it’s great for holding tanks that could come into contact with corrosive liquids, such as sea water, or chlorine.

SendCutSend’s laser cut 316 stainless steel will live up to your highest expectations regarding strength and corrosion resistance. While it’s not as easy to machine as 304 stainless steel, it makes up for that in the durability it will bring to your next project. And machining is our wheelhouse, so you just sit back while we laser cut all your 316 stainless steel parts.
