AWS E308L-16

Suitable welding positions

CWB to CSA W48-14 AWS A 5.4-06 E308L-16

Typical applications

Welding of low carbon 18% Chromium (Cr) – 8% Nickel (Ni) Stainless Steel (AISI 301, 302, 304, 304L, 304LN, 304H, 305, 308, 308L, 321, 347; ACI CF-3, CF-8, CF-8C, and CF-20).

Characteristics on usage

  • Excellent welding efficiency thanks to the extremely high deposition rate. The low carbon content minimizes the formation of chromium carbides reducing the potential of inter-granular corrosion. Smooth arc transfer and slag is self peeling for easy removal.
  • Inter-granular corrosion resistance is superior to E308-16 electrodes.
