AWS A5.9 ER308L Stainless Steel MIG Welding Wire
AWS A5.9 ER308L Stainless Steel MIG Welding Wire Application
ER308L is similar to 308 but contains an average .02% carbon producing a weld deposit with good resistance against intergranular corrosion caused by carbide precipitation. 308L is commonly used for welding AISI types 304L, 308L, 321 and 347. ER308 stainless steel MIG (GMAW) welding wire consists of 20% chromium and 10% nickel. Welds type 301, 302, 304, 308, 321 and 347 stainless steel.
The main component of 308L is ultra-low C-18Cr-8Ni, it is MIG wires that are widely used in welding austenitic stainless steel and it is all position welding. The weld-ability is good. Feeding wire smoothly will enable stable arc, excellent welding performance and spatter is very low.
This filler metal is the most popular grade among stainless steels, used for general purpose applications where corrosion conditions are moderate. Applications include the food and beverage industry, maintenance and repair. It is suitable for 18Cr-8Ni type low carbon stainless steel petrochemical, pressure vessels, food machinery, Welding of medical equipment and other equipment.
Characteristics: 1. deposited metal has good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance.
2. arc stability, beautiful appearance, a good fluidity of molten iron, excellent welding process performance.
Required Shielding Gas: Argon
