AdamIQ™ 316L

AISI 316L | W. Nr 1.4404 | DIN X2CrNiMo17-12-2 | UNS S31603

AdamIQ™ 316L is a robust feedstock for any laser powder bed fusion machine (L-PBF). The “general purpose” powder suitable for the widest range of applications, across multiple industries.
Made from 100% recycled steel and renewable energy. Spherical, with high flowability and low level of impurities.

Inert gas atomised Stainless Steel Powder, it comprises chromium, nickel, and molybdenum with an austenitic microstructure, which is particularly used for applications requiring intergranular corrosion resistance. It has excellent weldability in laser and electron-beam additive manufacturing processes. Solution annealing can improve its corrosion resistance. Most situations do not require solution annealing, which is application specific.

Post-processing methods include traditional machining, abrasive flow machining, shot peening, grinding, polishing, chemical milling/etching, and others. Parts made from 316L generally have service temperatures of up to 425 °C (800 °F), beyond which chromium carbides precipitate. Maximise your printer’s uptime by keeping it loaded and running with this versatile powder.
