GETIG 316L

IDENTIFICATION : ER 316L

SPECIFICATIONS : AWS 5.9 ER316L BS2901-90 316S92 DIN8556-86 WSGX2CrNiMo 19.12

CHARACTERISTICS:

Getig 316L is intended for welding the low carbon, molybdenum alloyed acid resisting 316L austenitic stainless steels of similar composition. The deposited weld metal has improved resistance to general corrosion and pitting resistance in marine and industrial environments.

APPLICATIONS :

Widely used in chemical process plant. Suitable for welding ASTM 316 / 316L grades as well as Nb or Ti stabilized stainless steels provided service temperatures for structural work arc below 400°C.

SHIELDING GAS : Pure Argon 99.99% 6-12 l/min.

FERRITE CONTENT IN THE WELD METAL : 3 – 10 FN.

WELDING CURRENT : DC ( - )

CORROSION RESISTANCE :

Good resistance to general and intergranular corrosion in the more severe environments. For e.g. hot dilute acids. Good resistance to chloride pitting corrosion.
