Solid wire with extra low carbon for welding austenitic CrNi-steels


Used for welding of 304 and 304L grade stainless steel. They are used for a wide range of applications including pipework and plate fabrication, vessel production etc.


  • The low carbon content reduces the propensity to intergranular carbide precipitation, which increases the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers.
  • The weld metal provides good corrosion resistance properties to intergranular attack from a range of liquid media at service temperatures up to 300°C.
  • Excellent mechanical strength and corrosion resistance.

Typical Applications

  • Pipework
  • Petrochemical
  • Nuclear Power generation
  • Cladding

Shielding Gas

  • M12 : Mixed gas Ar+ 0.5-5% CO2, M13 : Mixed gas Ar+ 0.5-3% O2
