Sandvik Bioline 5R62/3R65 (Wire)
Datasheet updated 2013-02-18 14:23:36 (supersedes all previous editions)
Sandvik Bioline 5R62 and 3R65 are austenitic stainless steels alloyed with molybdenum. Sandvik Bioline 3R65 is a low carbon version of Sandvik Bioline 5R62. The grades are characterized by:
- Good resistance to general corrosion and better resistance to pitting than ASTM 304, because of the alloying with Mo.
- High tensile strength
- ASTM 316/316L
- UNS S31600/ S31603
- ISO 316/316L
- EN number 1.4401/1.4404
- EN name X5CrNiMo17-12-2/X2CrNiMo17-12-2
- W.Nr. 1.4401/1.4404
- JIS SUS316/SUS316L
- ASTM F899
- ISO 16061
