Getig 317, ER 317
AWS/SFA 5.9: ER 317
A stainless steel tig rod intended for welding of low carbon, molybdenum alloyed, acid resisting austenitic stainless steel of similar composition (317). The deposited weld metal is of X-ray quality. The higher molybdenuem content provides better resistance to both acid corrosion and pitting corrosion compared to 316L stainless steel grade.
