ER308/308L

< CLICK HERE for additional information on this alloy >

 

ER308/308L is used for welding types 304, 304L, 308, and 308L stainless steels.  It is very similar to type 308, but has a carbon content held to a max of .03% to avoid carbide precipitation.  This product can also be used for welding types 321 and 347 stainless steels.

 

Typical Applications:   applications at cryogenic temperatures, ideal for welding type 304L stainless steels
