What is AISI 316Ti?

AISI 316Ti is a stainless, austenitic titanium stabilized chromium-nickel-molybdenum steel. Titanium stabilization makes the AISI 316Ti more susceptible to pitting corrosion and has less resistance to chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking.

What is the difference between 316L and 316Ti?

The simple truth is 316L and 316Ti are both excellent products. 316L has virtually the same amount of Titanium for high temperature stability as 316Ti but it also includes Molybdenum. This is what gives 316L greater corrosion resistance against low temperatures.

Does AISI 304 stainless steel rust?

There are more than 150 grades of stainless steel out there, and some are simply more prone to rust than others. It’s important to consider that, although 304 stainless steel can corrode, it will not rust in normal atmospheric conditions.

Is 316Ti stainless steel magnetic?

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. Its magnetic permeability is typically less than 1.02 at 200 H (Oersteds).

Is titanium in stainless steel?

Titanium has been added to ferritic stainless steels to combat the detrimental effects of intergranular corrosion.

What is better titanium or stainless steel?

Which is stronger? When alloyed with other metals such as aluminium or vanadium, titanium becomes dramatically stronger than many steels. In terms of sheer strength, the best titanium alloys beat low to medium grade stainless steels. However, the highest grade of stainless steel is stronger than titanium alloys.

What is the difference between AISI 304 and SS 304?

SUS304 (SUS meaning Steel Use Stainless) stainless steel austenite is typically known as the Japanese name for SS304 or AISI 304. The main difference between the two materials is not any physical property or feature, but how it is referenced in American and Japanese grades.

What is the difference between AISI 304 and AISI 316?

The simple answer is 304 contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel while 316 contains 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum. The molybdenum is added to help resist corrosion to chlorides (like sea water and de-icing salts).

What is the difference between AISI 316 and SS316?

AISI 316 vs 316L Stainless Steel (UNS S31603) The main difference between 316 and 316L stainless steel is the level of carbon content, weldability, corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. SS316 has a 0.08% max carbon content while SS316L (UNS S31603) only has a maximum 0.03% carbon content.

What is the difference between 304 and 316L stainless steel?
