316L, 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. Stainless steel can be used for food-safe applications, machine components and production tools. Other applications include ductwork, durable prototypes, spare parts, medical instruments and wearables.
