Blue Max Stainless Wire

Blue Max® MIG 312

MIG (GMAW) Wire

AWS: ER312

Designed for welding dissimilar metal joints

DETAILS

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

Features

  • The weld deposits exhibit high tensile strength and offer some resistance to abrasion
  • Applications should be limited to 800°F (420°C)
  • Austenite forming elements can pose considerable dilution, such as nickel, the microstructure of this product is two-phase - which delivers highly resistant to weld metal cracks and fissures.

Typical Applications

  • General Fabrication
  • Maintenance and Repair
  • Dissimilar metals

Welding Positions

  • All

Shielding Gas

  • 98% Ar/ 2% O2
