GFC 316L

CLASSIFICATION : AWSA5.22 E316LT1-1/4 JIS Z3323YF316LC

CHARACTERISTICS :

GFC–316L (for all-position operation) is low carbon 18%Cr-12%Ni-2%Mo austenitic stainless steel flux cored wire. The typical molybdenum gives improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion over grades 308L and 309L, particularly in the presence of chlorides. Manufactured under a quality system certified to ISO9001 requirements.

TYPICAL APPLICATION :

Used for welding similar alloys (containing 2% molybdenum) such asAISI316, 316L, 316Ti and 318; also for high temperature service applications. The presence of molybdenum provides increased creep residence at elevated temperatures.

Characteristics on Usage :

Generally used with 100% CO2 shielding gas or mixtures of Ar + 20-25% CO2.Stable arc transfer and ideal slag removal guarantee that slag comes off easily, creating a smooth and fine bead surface.
