As American AISI basic grades, the only practical difference between 304 or 316 and 304L or 316L is carbon content. The carbon ranges are 0.08% maximum
25 Sep 2013 To begin there is not a visible difference between the two, both are polished or grained the exact same way, you can't tell just by looking at it.
Penn Stainless Products supplies stainless beams in 304/304L and 316/316L. Stainless beams are primarily rolled or extruded up to 6″ height x 3.332″ flange
316 / 316L stainless steel beam exhibits higher corrosion and pitting resistance than 304 alloys due to higher percentages of molybdenum and nickel in the alloy
In metallurgy, stainless steel, also known as inox steel or inox from French inoxydable . In 1929, before the Great Depression hit, over 25,000 tons of stainless steel 304 may be referred to as A2 stainless (not to be confused with AISI grade A2 Low-carbon versions, for example 316L or 304L, are used to avoid corrosion
