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 written as 1.4441 or X2CrNiMo18-15-3 according to EN norm and it is written as UNS S31673 according to UNS norm. 316Lvm stainless steel is usually used inside the body parts. 316LVM stainless is bio-compatible stainless steel grade and 1.4441 grade can stay in side body for a very long time. 316LVM is also antimagnetic so this antimagnetic structure is very important for MRI machines. MRI machines works with extream magnetic fields and if any kind of material inside body is magnetic, then the machine can pull that magnetic part and this can cause injuries. 316LVM stainless steel is ready in Birçelik warehouse stocks and we only sell European Origin 1.4441 materials. 1.4441 stainless usually used in body part, prosthesis parts and dental parts.
