Select 430NbL

Stainless Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Dual stabilized with columbium (Cb), also known as niobium (Nb), and titanium (Ti) for improved sensitization resistance.
  • Dual stabilization improves weld metal mechanical properties over Ti or Nb only stabilized weldments.
  • Specially formulated to promote a fine-grained ferritic microstructure.
  • Superior arc stability over entry level Nb stabilized wires.
  • Metal cored construction inherently provides better welding performance compared to solid wires.
  • Designed to weld exhaust system components of similar composition, ~18 wt% chromium (Cr), with increased oxidation resistance at high operating temperatures.
