Stainless Steel Electrodes ALPHA 316L


Characteristics :

ALPHA 316L is an extra low carbon, medium heavy coated, rutile based, all position austenitic type electrode for welding of low carbon 18/8/3 Cr/Ni/Mo stainless steels. Controlled ferrite content of 4- 8% gives maximum resistance to stress corrosion cracking, hot cracking and chemical corrosion at high temperatures up to 8500C. The Mo content makes it resistant to corrosive agents of reducing nature. The weld metal has excellent creep strength and is of radiographic quality.

Applications :

For welding AISI 316 ELC or 317 ELC. Also suitable for welding AISI 316, 316L, 317L class fabrication in Chemical plants, paint & Dye industries.
