A SUPER DUPLEX STAINLESS STEEL ELECTRODE FOR WELDING ALLOYS OF SIMILAR COMPOSITION
GRIBINOX 25.9.4 L E 25.9.4-15
AWS/SFA 5.4: E2594-15 EN 1600 : E2594 NLR
Low hydrogen basic coated electrode manufactured by using Duplex grade of Stainless Steel core wire. Deposited welds are of radiographic quality. The electrode can be used in all position except verticle down, specifically well suited for pipe-joint. Gribinox 25.9.4L electrode is designed to match similar alloys. The electrode gives matching strength and corrosion resistance in the solution treated condition but can also be used in the as-welded condition. Nitrogen and nickel contents are controlled to give a balanced duplex structure to minimize the risk of cracking, particularly in highly restrained welds.
