DIN 8556-86 E2312 LR23
A rutile flux coated electrode which deposits a low carbon 23%Cr/13%Ni austenitic stainless steel weld metal. The high alloy content and ferrite level enable the weld metal to tolerate dilution from mild and low alloy steels without hot cracking or brittle structure. It is widely used to apply buffer layers on steel components where final layers are to be deposited using 308L or other stainless steel electrodes. The deposited weld metal is of X-ray quality. The electrode is ideal for both fillet and butt welding applications.
