Solid wire with low carbon concentration designed for welding stainless steel with 19% Cr, 12% Ni and 2-3% Mo content with service temperature up to 400°C. Thanks to the higher silicon content its arc stability gets improved, it gives good-looking weld bead and very limited spattering. It finds application in pipes fabrication, weld overlay, vessels & boilers fabrication, ship building and marine or salt environment. Generally good resistance to corrosion, intercrystalline corrosion and to many acids. To be used under the shield of Ar 98% + O2 2%.
