ER316/316L


Alloy Type:

ER316/316L is used for welding types 316 and 316L stainless steels.  It has a maximum carbon content of .03% to reduce the possibility of formation of intergranular carbide precipitation.  This low carbon alloy is not as strong as 316H at elevated temperatures.

Typical Applications:   primarily used for welding low carbon molybdenum bearing austenitic alloys
