Stabilized stainless electrode for applications at higher temperatures (up to 400°C (750°F)).
Joining of austenitic stainless steel containing Molybdenum:
a) stabilized with Ti or Nb, as AISI 318, 316Nb, 316Ti, Wn° 1.4580, 1.4571, 1.4583, BS 320 S17, 320 S31, 320 S33, 318 S96, 318, C17
b) low carbon, as AISI 316, 316LN, Wn° 1.4401, 1.4436, 1.4449, 1.4404, 1.4435, 1.4438, 1.4406, 1.4429
Quiet arc, good control of the molten pool. No spatter.
If the weld metal has to be polished to a high degree, use Lastek 804.
Paint-industry, weaving-mills, photo-laboratories, food industry (dairy factories, breweries), constructions exposed to sea-water.
Very low amperage, short arc; use dry electrodes.
