SelectAlloy 310G-C

Stainless Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • The undiluted microstructure of this alloy is generally considered to be fully austenitic.
  • The addition of manganese (Mn) reduces the tendency for hot cracking of this fully austenitic alloy type.
  • Metal cored construction inherently provides better welding performance compared to solid wires of equal or similar AWS classification; benefits include ability to successfully bridge gaps when part fit up is not as designed, higher travel speeds can be achieved with subsequent lower heat inputs at equal amperages, and ability to join thin materials.
  • Applications include welding base materials of similar composition and for welding type 410 and 430 stainless steels when preheating or postweld heat treatments are not possible.
