E316L-16 electrodes: Choose low-carbon electrodes for welding 316L or 318 stainless. Ideal for food, medical, and chemical apps. Versatile, smooth arc, and excellent corrosion resistance for professional welds.
Your go-to solution for welding type 316L or 318 stainless steels. These electrodes boast a maximum of 0.04% carbon content in the weld metal, minimizing carbide precipitation and intergranular corrosion. Perfect for various applications, including molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steels in food, medical, chemical, and more. Designed with low carbon levels, these electrodes excel in high-temperature service by eliminating carbide precipitation. The molybdenum grade enhances corrosion resistance, making them ideal for resisting pitting, acids, and general corrosion. The rutile-basic coating ensures a smooth arc transfer, while the self-peeling slag simplifies post-weld cleaning. Whether you're working on pump housings, impellers, tanks, vats, food processing equipment, pharmaceutical equipment, valves, shafts, hospital equipment, pipes, or fittings, these electrodes deliver smooth arcs, easy slag release, and excellent corrosion resistance. Weld with confidence in all positions, thanks to their low carbon content that resists cracking. For the vertical-down welding of steels with similar composition, turn to the E316-16 electrodes. These maintain a smooth finish, with a small, easy-to-manipulate slag volume, perfect for applications in chemical and process industries. Offers excellent all-position capabilities and extra low carbon content to resist pitting. With these electrodes, achieve precise welds with a professional finish. Their versatility and corrosion-resistant qualities make them indispensable for a wide range of applications.
