ASTM A240 grade 316 sheet

Table of Content

What is ASTM A240 grade 316 sheet?

This sheet uses a corrosion-resistant grade of stainless steel comprising chromium, nickel, and also molybdenum. An ASTM A240 Grade 316 sheet can operate under conditions exposed to salt water, chlorides, and sulfuric acid. SA 240 316 rolling sheets exhibit a tensile strength of 515 MPa and a yield strength of 205 MPa.

What are the difference between ASTM A240 type 316 plate and sheet?

The primary difference lies in the thickness or the gauge of the product. An ASTM A240 gr 316 flat sheet has a measurement of less than ¼” or 6mm. Industries decide between the two depending on their weight requirements and service duration. An SA 240 316 plate is thicker than a sheet, usually over 6mm.

What are the top 4 advantages of SA 240 type 316 hot rolled plate ?

These plates get manufactured at elevated temperatures, i.e., above the material’s recrystallization temperature. An ASME SA 240 316 hot rolled plate exhibits numerous bonuses, which we list below:

  • It boasts workability, forming into client-specified sizes readily.
  • It has fewer internal stressors.
  • Good corrosion resistance in oxidizing and marine conditions.
  • It is cheaper than cold rolling.
