Stainless steel

316 LVM (ESR/VAR)
1.4441
Annealed

316LVM is an austenitic stainless steel whose basic composition is similar to the 316L, except with a much stricter tolerance to impurities. This gives the steel a better resistance to corrosion than ordinary 316L, making it more suitable for medical applications (and especially implants).

Key benefits
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Biocompatibility
  • For implants and instruments
