ER308LSi Filler Wire is austenitic stainless steel TIG, MIG and SUB-ARC wire used to weld base metal of similar composition types such as AISI 201(17-4 Mn), 202(18-5 Mn), 205, 301(17-7), 302(18-8), 304(19-9), 305(18-10), 308(20-10) also the low carbon grades. The increased silicon improves the usability of the ER308LSi Welding Wire in the gas metal arc welding process, smoother bead appearance and wetting while the low carbon reduces carbide precipitation. Welding speed of SS ER308LSi Filler Wire is higher than ER 308 or ER 308L Filler Wire due to improved weldability of the weld metal.
Stainless Steel ER308LSi Filler Wires are used with the MIG/GMAW process to provide improved arc characteristic and wetting of the weld bead. Stainless Steel ER308LSi Welding Wires have outstanding resistance to general corrosion and is used in a range of applications in the chemical, petrochemical, food, brewery and nuclear industries; as well as many other general fabrication applications.
