SelectAlloy 309LCb-AP

Stainless Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • The addition of niobium (Nb) reduces the possibility of intergranular chromium carbide precipitation and thus susceptibility to intergranular corrosion.
  • Designed for welding in all positions where well washed beads can be achieved with minimal weaving in both 100% CO₂ or 75-80% Ar/balance CO₂ shielding gas
  • Smooth arc transfer produces minimal spatter.
  • This alloy is used to overlay carbon and low-alloy steels and produce a niobium stabilized first layer.
