As a chromium-molybdenum(Cr-Mo) alloy steel, the EN 10216-2 16Mo3 seamless pipe is mainly utilized at elevated temperatures in oil refinery piping, steam pipeline, and power plant projects, etc. The steel number of grade 16Mo3 is 1.5415 which is an European designation. The relative ASTM equivalent is ASTM A335 Grade P1(also known as ASME SA335 Grade P1). The A335 P1 pipe is also used in high-temperature services which contains a bit higher molybdenum by mass.
