316 / 316L stainless steel pipe is used for applications that require the high strength, toughness and workability, coupled with increased corrosion resistance. The alloy contains higher percentages of molybdenum and nickel than 304 stainless, increasing the corrosion resistance and making it an ideal material for applications in aggressive environments. 316L contains higher levels of carbon than 316 stainless, reducing its weldability.

3. Materials & Manufacture
Pipe shall be either hot finished or cold finished;
The pipe shall be free of scale and contaminating exogenous iron particles. Pickling, blasting, or surface finishing is not mandatory when pipe is bright annealed.
