E308L-16 STAINLESS STEEL ELECTRODE AWS A5.4 Welding Positions: All, except vertical down AC & DC+ (reverse polarity) INTRODUCTION: Rutile-basic coated, high-alloy stick electrode. Versatile electrode designed to weld several types of austenitic steels. Can be welded in any position except vertical down. Self-removing slag, very low spatter tendency. Excellent ignition and re-ignition characteristics. Very homogeneous seam finish APPLICATIONS: Austenite-ferrite joints (dissimilar), cladding, corrosion-resistant layers on non-alloyed construction steels, buffer layers, Type 302, 304 and 308 stainless steels, A743 and A744 Type CF-8 cast material WELDING PARAMETERS: Polarity Current (Amps) 3/32?
