316 stainless steel balls have exceptional corrosion resistance, thanks to their higher nickel and molybdenum content. Developed to resist attack by sulphuric, phosphoric and acetic acid compounds; these stainless steel balls are used extensively in applications involving photographic chemicals, inks, rayon, rubber, textile bleaches, dye stuffs and high temperature equipment. 316 stainless steel balls are also FDA approved for medical grade material.
These metal balls made from type 316 have excellent environmental resistance and low magnetic properties, which make this material a great choice for many types of applications. This material is passivated to reduce reactivity.
Density – 0.29 lbs./cu. in.
Annealed – Rockwell B 75-95. Not annealed – Rockwell C 25-39.
Available in sizes from .7mm to 63.5mm in grades 50 through 1000.
