Properties And Applications

Rutile type fully-austenitic stainless steel electrode for welding of unstabilized or stabilized corrosion resisting Cr-Ni-Mo alloyed stainless steels like 904L/1.4539. Especially used in flue gas desulphurization plants, fertilizer plants, sea water transfer fittings, in petrochemical, paper and pulp industries, etc. Due to high Ni, Mo and low C content, weld metal have high resistant to intergranular, pitting, crevice and stress corrosion types in chloride containing solutions, phosphorus-, sulphur-, formic acids and sea water. Possible to use equally well both AC and DC. Easy arc striking and re-striking. Fine metal droplet transfer, good fusion of joints faces, finely rippled flat and smooth bead surface, especially in fillet welds. Easy slag removal of slag.
