GFC 308L

CLASSIFICATION : AWS/SFA 5.22:E308LT – 1/4

CHARACTERISTICS :

GFC 308L is stainless steel fluxcored wire for all position welding to be used with CO2 or Argon + Co2 mixed shielding gases. This wire benefits from a fast freezing slag system.

TYPICAL APPLICATION :

Its designed for welding of 18% Cr. 8% Ni Stainless Steel.
For welding AlSi stainless steels such as 304, 304L, 321-UNS alloys such as S30400 S30403 etc.
For fabrication of chemical tanks, storage tanks, pipe lines, reaction vessels, etc.
