FLUX CORED 307C

FLUX CORED 307C is a composite, metal cored electrode for GMAW of stainless and certain types of other austenitic steels. It may also be used to weld armor steels and ferritic stainless steels in specific applications. The composite nature of FLUX CORED 307C provides higher deposition rates and a faster travel speeds than those achieved by solid electrodes. Shielding gas blends of 95-98% Ar/balance O2 and 75-95% Ar/balance CO2 can be used.

FLUX CORED 308H-AP

FLUX CORED 308H-AP is a gas-shielded, flux cored, stainless steel electrode designed to weld in all positions. It has a nominal weld metal composition of 20% Cr, 10% Ni and a carbon content of 0.04 to 0.08%. The higher carbon in this alloy makes it suitable for higher termperature use. It is designed for use with 100% CO2 or a blend of 75-80% Ar/balance CO2. Shielding gas mixtures with more than 75-80% Argon are not recommended.

FLUX CORED 308L

FLUX CORED 308L is a gas-shielded, flux cored, stainless steel electrode designed to weld in flat and horizontal positions. It has a nominal weld metal composition of 20%Cr, 10%Ni and a maximum carbon content of 0.04%. The low carbon in this alloy minimizes carbide precipitation and makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion. Arc transfer is smooth, with minimal spatter. It is designed for use with 100% CO2 shielding gas or a blend of 75-80% Ar/balance CO2.
