WIPWeld Stain Arc 308 (AWS E308-16)

A rutile type electrode giving stainless austenitic weld metal containing approximately 18% Cr and 8% Ni. The striking and re-striking of the electrode is remarkably easy. Slag detachability is very good and the risk of porosity in the weld is minimal provided the electrode is dry. The smaller sizes including 3.25 mm are suitable for positional welding while the bigger sizes are for flat only.

Applications and Directions

Highly recommended for general repair work and fabrication of stainless steel equipment such as containers, tanks, vats and other equipment used in the dairy, chemical and food industries, Also ideal as protective overlay steel where medium hardness and corrosion resistance is required.
