|FEATURES & APPLICATIONS|
This electrode is used for joining similar composition stainless and cast steels with 12% chromium. This alloy is used extensively for corrosion and oxidation resistance at elevated temperatures up to 1500ºF. Unlike the chromium-nickel stainless steels, this type is not subject to loss of corrosion resistance due to carbide precipitation. It is also used for the surfacing of carbon steels to resist abrasion, erosion and corrosion. It is a air hardened steel which requires preheat and post heat treatment to achieve welds of adequate ductility.
