316 stainless steel is an austenitic grade that has excellent ductility, toughness and corrosion resistance with good strength. The presence of molybdenum gives 316 stainless steel better overall corrosion resistant properties than grade 304. 316 stainless steel shim has an advantage over 304 in chemical, petrochemical, food and marine applications which is ideal for gaskets, shims, bursting discs, expansion joints etc. 316 stainless steel is ideal for use as packing shims and can also be used in some spring applications.
