Stainless Steel Foil Alloy 316 contains 18% chromium, 8% nickel, and 2-3% molybdenum. The addition of molybdenum increases both the corrosion resistance and the high-temperature strength of this alloy. The most outstanding advantage of this addition is the increase corrosion resistance to reducing acids and pitting or pin-hole corrosion. In general, the 316 alloy is known as the major all-around corrosion resistance austenitic stainless steel available. This non-magnetic, non-heat treatable alloy possesses excelling cold forming and drawing properties. It also is rated up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Standard Specifications: AMS-5524, AMS-5507, ASTM A 167, QQS-766, MILS-5059
