SelectAlloy 317L-AP BF

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.
  • The addition of Mo improves resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion compared to type 308 stainless steel with increased resistance compared to type 316 due to the nominal ~1 % increase (Mo).
  • 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.
  • Applications for this alloy type include welding components of similar composition or multilayer classing applications in severely corrosive environments, where crevice and pitting corrosion are of concern.
