Stainless steel foam has been used for various applications due to their advantages over other materials such as high corrosion resistance, easily availability, and low-cost as well as good mechanical properties. In this work, stainless foam was produced by using foam replication method with different solid loading of SS316L i.e 55 wt.%, 60 wt.%, 65 wt.% and 70 wt.% SS316L. The samples were sintered in a vacuum furnace at 1250°C. The sample microstructure was characterized by using scanning electron microscope (SEM) while the elemental component was analyzed by using Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX). The Archimedes test has been conducted to determine the samples density and porosity. It was found that the best sample is SS316L foam with 65 wt.% solid loading with the density and porosity of 1.85 g/cm3 and 76.84% respectively which are similar tothe human bone. The sample also has open and interconnected pores.
