Lincoln Electric's Stainless Consumables Family

UltraCore® 316L

Flux-cored (FCAW-G) Wire

AWS: E316LT0-1, E316LT0-4

Smooth arc action with minimal spatter reduces post-weld cleaning

DETAILS

ULTRACORE® stainless flux-cored wires deliver consistent mechanical properties, superior arc performance, easy slag removal

Features

  • Precision layer wound spool delivers steady spool payoff and more consistent feeding
  • Smooth arc action with minimal spatter reduces post-weld cleaning
  • Polished weld bead appearance reduces post-weld brushing

Typical Applications

  • General Fabrication
  • Process Industries
  • Applications requiring good resistance to pitting and general corrosion
  • Best choice for food-grade stainless containers and surfaces; higher Ni & Mo provide better corrosion resistance to chlorides (i.e. salt) and acids (i.e. tomato or lemon juice).

Welding Positions

  • Flat/Horizontal

Shielding Gas

  • 75% Ar/25% CO2
