New Austenitic, Self-Shielded, Stainless Steel Electrodes from Select-Arc
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced two self-shielded, flux cored, austenitic stainless steel electrodes that are designed to reduce cracking and improve corrosion resistance.
SelectAlloy 307T0-3 (E307T0-3) contains a nominal weld metal composition of 21% chromium, 10% nickel, 4% manganese and 1% molybdenum. It is utilized to weld armor plate as well as join carbon and low alloy steels to austenitic stainless steels and for the cladding of carbon steels. This electrode produces a well washed bead and a globular arc transfer with low spatter and is ideal for surfacing or welding over gaps. SelectAlloy 307T0-3's relatively high manganese content helps reduce the chances of cracking in dissimilar metal welding.
SelectAlloy 347T0-3 (E347T0-3) is composed of 20% chromium, 10% nickel and 0.7% columbium. The columbium forms a stable carbide which reduces chromium carbide precipitation and makes the weld metal more resistant to intergranular corrosion. This electrode features the same welding characteristics as SelectAlloy 307T0-3 and is designed to weld Types 321, 347 and 348 stainless steels and may also be used for the cladding of carbon steels.
Both electrodes are available in .045", 1/16" and 3/32" diameters.
