316LVM (1.4441) Stainless Steel

316LVM stainless steel or 1.4441 stainless steel (316L grade which confirms ISO 5832-1 norm) is a medical implant grade. This grade is usually used in side the body parts. This grade is bio-compatible grade and this grade can stay in side body for a very long time. This grade is also antimagnetic so this antimagnetic structure is very important for MRI machines. 316LVM or 1.4441 grade is also shown as X2CrNiMo18-15-3 or S31673.
