Prodec® 316P/316LP Plate - AMS 5524, 5507


PRODEC® 316/316L are improved versions of standard Type 316/316L.  The steel is processed with advanced ladle metallurgy techniques for improved machinability and outstanding uniformity. These materials offer faster machining speeds, longer tool life, improved part quality, and lower total cost of machined parts.  They also provide improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in environments containing chlorides and other halides.
