Blue Max® MIG 308LSi

MIG (GMAW) Wire

AWS: ER308Si, ER308LSi

Designed to weld "18-8," CrNi, 304, 304L austenitic stainless steel

DETAILS

Blue Max® MIG wire is designed to perform exceptionally at high wire feed speeds

Features

  • Proprietary surface lubricant for arc stability and steady wire feeding
  • Higher silicon content improves wetting of the weld metal and potentially higher travel speeds compared to standard 308L products
  • Q2 Lot™ - Certificate showes actual wire composition and calculated ferrite number (FN) available online
