Material Characteristics

The stainless austenitic steel 316L has a good resistant to corrosion. It can be used for temperatures up to 550 °C. Due to its resistance to intergranular corrosion at temperatures below 300 °C, this material is frequently used in chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry applications. The good weldability of 316L leads to an excellent processability in Laser Powder Bed Fusion and a wide applicability.

  1. The specified material properties were determined at room temperature. They are multidimensionally dependent on many different machine and process parameters. Without further investigation, the material properties do not constitute a sufficient basis for component dimensioning.
  2. Specific heat treatment processes lead to optimized mechanical-technological properties to meet the component requirements.
