Product Catalog

E316/316L-16


Alloy Type:

E316/316L-16 is used for welding type 316L or 318 stainless steels.  It has a maximum of .04% carbon content in the weld metal, which reduces the possibility of carbide precipitation and consequent intergranular corrosion.  This electrode is widely used in the welding of chemical equipment.

 

Typical Applications:    molybdenum bearing austenitic stainless steels
