0.035" SelectAlloy 308LSi-C Gas-Shielded Stainless Steel Electrode, Metal Cored, 33# Plastic Spool, Flat and Horizontal Position

SelectAlloy 308LSi-C is a gas-shielded, metal cored, stainless steel electrode. It has a nominal composition of 21% Cr, 10% Ni, 0.8% Si and a maximum carbon content of 0.03%. The higher silicon level improves bead wetting. The low carbon in this alloy minimizes carbide precipitation and makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion. It is designed for use with argon/1-2% oxygen or argon/1-2% CO2 shielding gases.Classification:EC308LSi per AWS A5.22 (Also per AWS A5.9:2006)Characteristics:SelectAlloy 308LSi-C operates with a smooth, spray arc transfer. It produces little or no slag and virtually no spatter, minimizing cleanup. It offers higher deposition rates and more controlled penetration than the equivalent solid electrode. As a result it operates at higher travel speeds and handles poor fitup.Applications:SelectAlloy 308LSi-C is ideally suited for making small butt, lap and fillet welds on thin material at elevated travel speeds. The additional silicon in this product will improve bead wetting and produce a cosmetically appealing weld. It may be used to weld 301, 302, 304L, 308, and 308L grades of stainless. Typical applications are in welded components for the chemical, paper, textile and pharmaceutical industries and food service equipment.
