If 316SS has a k of 0.0000090 @ +500 Deg. F what
would the k be at -500 Deg. F.  Are there any
charts covering such materials and cold values
relating to the coefficient of materials?

RE: Gentlemen

Yes I'be told ABZ is -469 max.  I just picked a random number without thinking (shame on me).  

Use -300 Deg. F and acceptable my apologies.

What I want to see is if k (contraction/reduction applies)rather than expansion (thermal) and how to determine the value for the cold reduction.

RE: Gentlemen

Lovison, when you've worked it out from the NIST site perhaps you could publish the data as a FAQ!!
