Can't say for sure, but more likely than not 316L in this case, imo.
Woah, mama!

I've got a roll of this - as far as I can tell, it's 316L, going by both what it says on the spool and the TCR value that gives me the best results.

I think L stands for

Smoking is Dead, Vaping is the Future, and the Future is Now... So I will ask a percentage of your sales for each device review I do.

Does it matter?

TCR difference is around 0.12%

It's the same as 316L except for 0.05% more carbon.

Hello, AuralVirus. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We confirmed that the material for SKU 3237800 is SS 361L. We have rectified the description on product page. The related department will be more careful when collecting the products' information.

Thank you again.
