Alleima® 316LVM is a vacuum remelted, molybdenum alloyed, austenitic stainless steel and is used for implant and other medical applications. It is also suitable for the watch industry because of its absolute cleanliness and excellent polishing properties.
The grade is characterized by:
Testing and certification can be performed according to ASTM F139 and ISO 5832-1.
Alleima® 316LVM is used for implants and other medical applications. The grade is also very suitable for the watch industry because of its absolute cleanliness and excellent polishing properties.
Strip steel can be supplied in coils, bundles, on plastic spools or in lengths. The edges can be either slit, deburred or smoothly rounded.
Alleima® 316LVM is supplied in solution annealed (bright annealed or annealed and pickled) or cold rolled condition.
