Washington Alloy E308L-16, 1/8 Stainless Steel Stick Welding Electrodes, 10 lbs.
AWS A5.4 E308L-16 / ASME SFA 5.4 E308L-16
USA E308L electrodes contain extra low carbon for the welding of austenitic, low carbon 18% Cr-8% Ni stainless steels such as AISI- 304-ELC. The weld deposit of this electrode contains a maximum of 0.04% carbon, which greatly reduces the formation of chromium carbides, thereby protecting the corrosion resistant qualities of the base metal and weld. USA 308L electrodes have a high deposition rate resulting in excellent efficiency. This electrode may be used in all positions. In addition to 304-ELC, E308L electrodes may be used for stabilized stainlesssteels such as AISI 321 and 347, Joint welds in construction parts for chemical engineering and cryogenic applications.
