316LVM Stainless Steel Bar

Excellent structural homogeneity.


316LVM offers superior general and intergranular corrosion resistance in biological environments.

316LVM stainless steel bar is modified to promote the highest levels of purity and cleanliness.


316LVM is often referred to as a medical-grade alloy due to the materials continued use in medical implants.

The alloy is modified from 316L stainless steel to produce an alloy with high levels of purity and cleanliness, which is achieved by vacuum remelting during the production process. The material also offers improved crevice corrosion and pitting resistance compared to stainless steel alloys 302 and 304 due to the addition of molybdenum in the alloying process. The alloy's chemistry is modified to promote the best possible corrosion resistance, which results in a free ferrite microstructure.


Medical Applications

316LVM offers superior general and intergranular corrosion resistance in biological environments. The alloy is also non-magnetic and retains these properties even after cold forming. Typical applications include dental implants, cardiac stents, bone screws and surgical implements.
