GEEFLUX 303 X GEESAW 316L - ONGC

CLASSIFICATION : JIS Z3324 FSS-B1/YS316 (L)

CHARACTERISTICS :

Agglomerated basic flux for welding austenitic stainless steel and heat resistance steels. It’s behavior as to carbon of the weld metal is strictly neutral. Excellent weldability such as stable arc and easy slag removal, uniform bead appearance.

Main constituents :

SiO2 Al2O3 CaF2
10% 35% 50%

APPLICATION:

Welding of austenitic stainless steel grades

A181, 316, 316 etc etc.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Dry the flux at 3000C –3500C for 1 hour before use.
  • Avoid using high current to prevent harming of corrosion- resistibility in heat-affected zone. Heat-input in welding should be kept as low as possible.
  • Welding in groove should be done in 2 passes to ease slag removal.
