AWS/SFA 5.4: E316L-17
BS 2926-1984 19.12.3.LR DIN 8556 19.12.3 LR26
A ructile flux coated electrode intended for welding of low carbon, molybdenum alloyed, acid resisting austenitic stainless steel of similar composition (316L). Operability is excellent with a low spatter arc, producing an exceptionally good weld bead appearance. The deposited weld metal is of X-ray quality.
