UNS S31600

A molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel which is more resistant to general corrosion, pitting, and crevice corrosion than chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steels. This Cr-Ni-Mo alloy also provides greater creep, stress-to-rupture, and tensile properties at elevated temperatures. The addition of molybdenum and the higher nickel content makes the steel more resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments.
