Blue Demon E316L Stainless Steel Covered Electrodes
E316/316L-16 is used for welding type 316L or 318 stainless steels. It has a maximum of .04% carbon content in the weld metal, which reduces the possibility of carbide precipitation and consequent intergranular corrosion. This electrode is widely used in the welding of chemical equipment.
Typical Applications: Molybdenum bearing austenitic stainless steels. Food, medical and chemical grade applications.
