Global 316L Stainless Steel Powder Market Trend 2025-2027 Difference Between 316 and 316L Stainless Steel By Newsmis-asia


The purchase pace of the demand side of the international thermal coal market continues to slow down, and the international price of thermal coal continues to decline. Thermal coal prices at major international ports continued to fall last week as European buyers slowed in recent days for April, coupled with weaker than expected import demand from end users in China. According to China’s Coal Market Net Watch: Australia’s Port of Newcastle thermal coal price index was $253/tonne, down from $309.02/tonne, down $56.02/tonne, in decrease of 18.13%. South Africa’s Port Richards thermal coal price index was $264.5/tonne, down US$62.72/tonne or 19.17% from US$327.22/tonne. The European ARA Tri-port thermal coal price index was $281.8/ton. Does the price of thermal coal in major international ports continue to drop to affect the price of 316L stainless steel powder?

316 stainless steel
Alloys are often added to steel to increase desired properties. the marine grade stainless steelknown as Type 316resists certain types of corrosive environments.
There are many types of 316 stainless steel. Some common types are the L, F, N, and H variants. Each is slightly different and each is used for a different purpose. L means that 316L steel has a lower carbon content than 316.

Common quality 316 and 316L stainless steel
Although similar to Type 304 commonly found in the food industry, both Types 316 and 316L have better corrosion resistance and are tougher at elevated temperatures. They also cannot be hardened by heat treatment and can be easily shaped and stretched.

Difference Between 316 and 316L Stainless Steel
316L stainless steel contains less carbon than 316. But even with its lower carbon content, 316L is very similar to 316 in almost every way. The cost is similar and both are durable and corrosion resistant, making them a good choice for high stress situations.
However, for projects that require a lot of solder, 316L is a better choice because 316 is more susceptible to solder corrosion than 316L (corrosion inside the solder). However, 316 can be annealed to resist weld attenuation. 316L is also a very suitable stainless steel for high temperature and high corrosion applications, which is why it is so popular in construction and marine projects.
Neither 316 nor 316L is the cheapest option. The 304 is similar to the 304L, but the price is lower. Neither is as durable as 317 and 317L, which have higher molybdenum content and better overall corrosion resistance.

Researchers from the Center for Translational Atomic Materials at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, have developed a new graphene film that absorbs more than 90% of sunlight while eliminating most of the losses infrared thermal emission, a highly efficient solar-heated metamaterial capable of rapidly heating to 83 degrees Celsius (181 degrees Fahrenheit) in an open environment with minimal heat loss. Proposed applications for the film include thermal energy harvesting and storage, solar thermal power generation and seawater desalination.
