What is 316L Stainless Steel Powder?

The spread of the novel coronavirus is taking a direct hit on the operations of airlines in Asia. About 500,000 flights taking off and landing in mainland China have been canceled since January, according to aviation information company Cerium. Tourists and business trips have plummeted. On the booking website, there are a large number of air tickets for local routes with a price reduction of nearly 90% compared with the original price and only tens of yuan for a one-way trip.
In February, China's aviation industry recorded its largest single-month loss of 24.59 billion yuan, of which airlines lost 20.96 billion yuan.
Data from the Civil Aviation Administration of China showed that in February, the number of passengers traveling by air fell 84.5% year-on-year to 8.34 million.
The stagnation of the Asian aviation industry has brought volatility to 316L powder.

316L Stainless Steel Powder
316L class stainless steel, sometimes referred to as A4 or Marine class stainless steel, is the second most common austenitic stainless steel after 304/A2.

Stainless Steel
Like steel, stainless steel consists mainly of iron and carbon. However, stainless steel also contains at least 10.5% chromium, a metallic element that gives the metal a finish and excellent corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is ideal for long-term applications that will face elements, moisture, and potentially corrosive chemicals. It is also ideal for sensitive industries such as food preparation and pharmaceuticals because the risk of contamination is much lower.
Different grades of stainless steel also contain trace amounts of different elements. Class 304 stainless steel contains up to 35% nickel and is used in applications such as appliances, cookware, plumbing, and hardware. Grade 316 contains molybdenum, making it ideal for Marine equipment, chemical and pharmaceutical equipment, and commercial kitchen equipment. 316 steel is available in different varieties, including 316L. 316L stainless steel contains less carbon and molybdenum than typical 316 steel, which gives the two alloys different properties.


Differences between 316 and 316L Stainless Steel
The 316L component has a lower proportion of carbon. To meet the requirements of 316L stainless steel, the carbon content should not exceed 0.03%. This reduces the risk of carbon deposition, making it a better choice for welding to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.
The carbon content of 316 stainless steel is moderate and the molybdenum content is between 2% and 3%, which improves resistance to corrosion, acid elements, and high temperatures.
Both materials have excellent ductility, which means they perform well in bending, stretching, deep drawing, and spinning.


How to choose 316 or 316L Stainless Steel?
The following factors need to be considered when deciding whether to use 316 or 316L stainless steel:
Corrosion resistance: 316L is the best choice for high corrosion and high-temperature applications. Because 316L has less carbon than 316, it has better intergranular corrosion resistance, which means its welds don't decay like 316 stainless steel.
Cost: Although 316L has a lower carbon content, 316 and 316L stainless steel cost about the same.
Magnetism: 316 stainless steel has very low response to the magnetic field. Unlike ferromagnetic basic stainless steel, most varieties of stainless steel (including 316) are austenitic--or actually nonmagnetic. 
However, some 316 stainless steel products can undergo processes such as cold forming and welding, in which the austenite crystal structure is transformed into ferromagnetic martensite. 316L steel is easier to obtain a degree of magnetism. 
Practical applications: Both types of stainless steel can be used in a variety of industries.  However, 316 is mainly used in construction and infrastructure because it is robust, pitting, and corrosion resistant in most cases. The 316L is popular in pharmaceutical and photographic equipment because it can withstand welding and corrosive chemicals.

The Free Trade Agreement between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has come into force on.

The UAE is the gateway to the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa, said Subramaniam, a senior official at India's Ministry of Commerce and Industry.  The agreement will help boost bilateral trade in goods from $60 billion a year now to $100 billion a year within five years.

On 18 February 2022, India and the United Arab Emirates signed the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. With the entry into force of the agreement, 90 percent of Indian goods and 65 percent of UAE goods will enjoy tariff-free market access.

Apart from its FTA with the UAE, India is also pursuing FTAs with Australia, the UK, Canada, Israel, the European Union, and the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Influenced by international situations, the supply and prices of many 316L powder are still very uncertain.
