What is 316L stainless steel powder

316L is a grade of stainless steel, AISI 316L is the corresponding American grade, and sus 316L is the similar Japanese grade. The unified digital code in my country is S31603, the standard brand is 022Cr17Ni12Mo2 (new standard), and the old brand is 00Cr17Ni14Mo2, which means that it mainly contains Cr, Ni, and Mo, and the number indicates the approximate percentage. 316L stainless steel powder is light gray, without noticeable oxidation color particles.

Advantages of 316L stainless steel powder

The main advantages of 316L stainless steel powder are excellent corrosion resistance, more extended durability than ordinary steel, high strength, high-temperature oxidation resistance, secure plastic processing, and excellent welding performance; high smoothness and simple maintenance. Suitable for jewelry, functional components, and artwork, special-shaped brackets, heat exchangers, injection molds, etc. Iron-based metal powders are widely used in 3D printing thin-walled devices and complex parts, thermal spraying, laser cladding, and biomedical applications.


Characteristics of 316L stainless steel powder

The shape of 316L stainless steel powder is spherical or nearly spherical, low oxygen content, uniform particle size distribution, good fluidity, high loose density and tap density, and has a wide range of applications in powder metallurgy and 3D printing.
