SelectAlloy 308L-AP LHCr+6

Stainless Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Low C, < 0.04 wt%, minimizes carbide precipitation (sensitization) which makes the weld metal more resistant to intergranular corrosion.
  • Smooth arc transfer and self-releasing slag that peels freely to ensure that clean up time is minimized.
  • Applications for this alloy type include welding austenitic alloys of similar composition, 301, 302, 304, 304L, 308, and 308L. These alloys are commonly found in chemical, paper, textile, food service equipment, and pharmaceutical industries.
  • This product has been specially formulated to reduce hexavlent chromium in the fume compared to standard cored and coated stainless electrodes.
