E- 318L-16 E 19.12.2L Nb R 16

DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATIONS:

It is an electrode giving Cb-Stabilised extra low carbon 10Cr-12Ni-2.3Mo weld metal having exceptional resistance to halide attack and inter granular corrosion. The electrode operates with a quite stable arc, and beads are smooth, finely rippled and uniform. The ferrite contents of the weld metal is controlled to give adequate crack resistance. The electrode is used for welding AISI 316, 316L, 316Ti and 318 steels and their equivalent grades
