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.

  • Sold in 1 lb or 5 lb plastic tube, electrode length is 16"
