Original Press Release:
All Position, Austenitic Stainless Steel Electrodes Offered By Select-Arc
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc., has introduced three gas-shielded, all position, austenitic electrodes to its stainless steel product line.
SelectAlloy 308L-AP is designed to make vertical up and overhead welding seem almost effortless. It features smooth arc transfer, quick freezing slag and minimal convexity. An absence of spatter residue reduces grinding and cleanup to practically nothing. SelectAlloy 308L-AP is used to weld types 301, 302, 304, 305 and 308 stainless steel. In addition it can weld 321 and 347, provided the service temperature does not exceed 500 degrees F.
SelectAlloy 309L-AP delivers exceptional puddle control, slag freezing, slag release and bead shape. It is an excellent choice to weld stainless steel to carbon steel or to serve as the first cladding layer on carbon steel.
SelectAlloy 316L-AP offers increased resistance to intergranular corrosion due to carbide precipitation without adding stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. The wire's molybdenum helps provide enhanced creep resistance at elevated temperatures and improves resistance to pitting in halide environments.
