Shielded metal arc welding of low carbon 18%Cr-8%Ni stainless steel such as SUS 304L.
Characteristics on usage
NC-38L and HIMELT-308L are lime-titania type electrodes, and HIMELT-908L makes higher
welding efficiency by higher amperage.
As the weld metals make low carbon austenitic structure, which contains suitable quantity of
ferrite, crack resistibility, is god and intergranular corrosion resistibility is superior to that of
NC-38 and HIMELT-308.
In the as-welded conditions the weld metals provide good corrosion resistibility and good
