E309L-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. Designed for joining stainless steel to mild or low alloy steel. Can be welded in any position except vertical down. Joint welding on heat-resistant CrNi steels. Self-removing slag, very low spatter tendency. For dissimilar joints and buffer layers. Excellent ignition and re-ignition characteristics. Maximum operating temperature 300 ?C APPLICATIONS: Austenite-ferrite joints (dissimilar), cladding, corrosion-resistant layers on non-alloyed construction steels, buffer layers.
