Shielded metal arc welding of low carbon 18%Cr-12%Ni-2%Mo stainless steel such as SUS316L.
Characteristics on usage
- NC-36L and HIMELT-316L are lime-titania type electrodes, and HIMELT-316L makes higher welding efficiency by higher amperage.
- As the weld metals contain proper quantity of ferrite in austenitic structure, the crack resistibility is excellent.
- The intergranular corrosion resistibility us superior to that of NC-36 and HIMELT-316L, due to lower carbon content.
