GFC 316L, E316LT1-1/4
AWS A5.22 E316LT1-1/4, JIS Z3323 YF316LC
GFC–316L (for all-position operation) is low carbon 18% Cr - 12% Ni - 2% Mo austenitic stainless steel flux cored wire. The typical molybdenum gives improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion over grades 308L and 309L, particularly in the presence of chlorides. Manufactured under a quality system certified to ISO:9001 requirements.
WELD METAL ANALYSIS (RANGE) %
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES (RANGE)
Used for welding similar alloys (containing 2% molybdenum) such as AISI316, 316L, 316Ti and 318; also for high temperature service applications. The presence of molybdenum provides increased creep residence at elevated temperatures.
CHARACTERISTICS ON USAGE:
Generally used with 100% CO2 shielding gas or mixtures of Ar + 20-25% CO2. Stable arc transfer and ideal slag removal guarantee that slag comes off easily, creating a smooth and fine bead surface.
