What is Stainless Steel Material?

SS316L, a low-carbon alloy of stainless steel also known as 1.4404, is highly corrosion-resistant and offers excellent strength. 3D-printed stainless steel has high ductility and good thermal properties.


  1. High hardness and toughness
  2. High corrosion resistance
  3. High machine-ability
  4. Can be highly polished

Applications of Stainless Steel Material

  1. Lifestyle: jewellery, functional elements in yachts, spectacle frames, etc.
  2. Aerospace: supports, brackets, etc
  3. Medical: functional prototypes and series-production parts in e.g. endoscopy and orthopedics
  4. Maritime components
  5. Automotive/Industrial, e.g. non-corroding common material, food and chemical plants
  6. Entry-level material for Laser Sintering Technology, e.g. mounting parts, heat exchangers, functional elements in electronic housing and accessories
