Another name for Stainless Steel
316L, a low-carbon
form of 316 steel. Although it is non-magnetic
when produced, it may become magnetic when worked.
Surgical Steel has a very low nickel
content (about 8%), and should therefore be tolerated
by all but the most allergic
people, who would have to resort to the much more expensive
. It is generally suitable for body piercings
and long-term wear.
