SIDER 308L Stainless Steel SAW Wire

SIDER 308L Stainless Steel SAW Wire

Filler Metal SIDER 308L is used for welding type 301, 302, 304, 304L, 308, and 308L This low carbon content wire minimizes carbide precipitation and offers good resistance to general corrosion and intergranular corrosion. The wire´s strength is less than that of columbium stabilized alloys or high carbon at elevated temperatures.
This wire may also be used for welding types 321 and 347 if service temperature does not exceed 260°C (500°F).
Designed for cryogenic applications where good weld metal toughness is required, as for the welding of types 304 & 304L stainless steels for the low temperature service, even down to liquid helium temperatures.
This is done by controlling the composition and the ferrite content (ferrite values will lower as impact toughness increases) to give good toughness at temperatures of -196°C (-320°F) and lower.
It is well suited for welding cryogenic vessel, food, brewery and pharmaceutical equipment, in nuclear facilities and in general structural applications, and process piping repair.
Suitable for service temperatures from -196 °C to +350 °C.

Available in diam.: 2.0 - 2.4 - 3.2 - 4.0 mm; on spools 25 kgs.
