Shielded metal arc welding of low carbon 18%Cr-8%Ni stainless steel such as SUS 304L.
Characteristics on usage
- NC-38L and HIMELT-308L are lime-titania type electrodes, and HIMELT-908L makes higher welding efficiency by higher amperage.
- As the weld metals make low carbon austenitic structure, which contains suitable quantity of ferrite, crack resistibility, is god and intergranular corrosion resistibility is superior to that of NC-38 and HIMELT-308.
- In the as-welded conditions the weld metals provide good corrosion resistibility and good mechanical properties.
