Blue Max® MIG 317L

MIG (GMAW) Wire

AWS: ER317, ER317L

Lower carbon & higher molybdenum content increases resistance to corrosion

DETAILS

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

Features

  • Low carbon content reduces the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation - increasing the resistance to intergranular corrosion
  • Weld deposit similar to 316L with high molybdenum content for increased corrosion resistance
  • Not suitable for structural service above 400°C (752°F) or for cyogenic applications

Typical Applications

  • General Fabrication
  • Offshore
  • Power Generation

Welding Positions

  • All

Shielding Gas

  • 98% Ar/ 2% O2
