AISI 316 – 316L

We are regularly purchasing and selling large amounts of AISI 316 and 316L (low carbon) stainless steel scrap and turnings on behalf of the main European consumers.

AISI 316 is a stainless steel alloy composed of chrome ranging between 16% and 18%, nickel between 10% and 14% and molybdenum between 2% and 3%;

The presence of molybdenum increases the resistance to corrosion of the alloy in all natural surroundings: 316 or 316L stainless steel is largely used in the food and agro-food sector and it can be also applied in surroundings characterised by high humidity and salinity and, for this reason, it is widely used in the shipbuilding industry. Moreover, it is also used for screws for jewellery or for orthopaedic implants (for this reason, it is also referred to as “surgical steel”). 316 scrap is one kind of scrap mostly dealt with on the market: thousands of tons are handled each month.
