Washington Alloy E309L-16, 1/8 Stainless Steel Stick Welding Electrodes, 10 lbs.
AWS A5.4 E309L-16 / ASME SFA 5.4 E309L-16
E309L electrodes are used for welding 22% Cr-12% Ni stainless steel, mild or carbon steel to stainless steel and stainless clad steel. This electrode will produce an austenitic-ferritic, ductile weld deposit that contains a maximum of 0.04% carbon, there-by providing good crack resistance and inter-granular corrosion resistance superior to that of USA 309 electrodes. Typical applications are similar to those of E309, but where
stronger corrosion resistance is required.
E309L is austenitic stainless steel used to weld base metal of similar composition and 300 types stainless to carbon or low alloy steels, also the low carbon grades stainless. The low carbon reduces carbide precipitation.
