316 Stainless Steel has very low magnetic permeability and is very corrosion resistant.
Common products made from 316 Stainless Steel include fasteners, shafting, couplings and some gears. A limited range of bearings can be obtained in 316 stainless steel, but it should be noted that they are not heat treated, and tolerances are not as precise as for SAE52100 or AISI440C. If your application requires a harder material see SAE52100 Steel or AISI440C Stainless Steel.
Bearings made from 316 Stainless Steel can be run fully immersed in water.
NOTE! 316 Stainless can become slightly magnetised when cold worked. This could result from the continuous rolling motion of balls within the bearing races.
The main component of the steel is Fe (Iron) with the addition of the elements shown in the following chart
|Max. % Chemical Composition|
|0.08||1.0||2.0||0.045||0.03||16.0 to 18.0||2.0 to 3.0||10.0 to 14.0|
If hardening by heat treatment is required see 416 Grade
