Executive 308L ER308/308L Low carbon in this filler metal reduces the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation. This increases the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. Strength of this low-carbon alloy, however, is less than that of the niobium-stabilized alloys or Type 308H at elevated temperatures. Executive 308L Data Sheet Executive 308L MSDS
Executive 308H ER308H Carbon content in the range of 0.04-0.08% provides higher strength at elevated temperatures. This filler metal is used for welding 304H base metal. Executive 308H Data Sheet Executive 308H MSDS
Executive 308LSi ER308LSi This classification is the same as ER308L, except for the higher silicon content. This improves the usability of the filler metal in the gas metal arc welding process. If the dilution by the base metal produces a low ferrite or fully austenitic weld, the crack sensitivity of the weld is somewhat higher than that of a lower silicon content weld metal. Executive 308LSi Data Sheet Executive 308LSi MSDS
Executive 309L ER309/309L Low carbon in this filler metal reduces the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation. This increases the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. Strength of this low-carbon alloy, however, is less than that of the niobium-stabilized alloys or Type 309 at elevated temperatures. Executive 309L Data Sheet Executive 309L MSDS
Executive 309LSi ER309LSi This classification is the same as ER309L, except for the higher silicon content. This improves the usability of the filler metal in the gas metal arc welding process. If the dilution by the base metal produces a low ferrite or fully austenitic weld, the crack sensitivity of the weld is somewhat higher than that of a lower silicon content weld metal. Executive 309LSi Data Sheet Executive 309LSi MSDS
Executive 309LMo Similar to ~ER309LMo The primary application for this filler metal is surfacing of base metals to improve their corrosion resistance. The ER309Mo is used to achieve a single-layer overlay with a chemical composition similar to that of a 316 stainless steel. It is also used for the first layer of multilayer overlays with filler metals such as ER316 or ER317 stainless steels. Without the first layer of 309LMo, elements such as chromium and molybdenum might be reduced to unacceptable levels in successive layers by dilution from the base metal. Executive 309LMo Data Sheet Executive 309LMo MSDS
Executive 310 ER310 Filler metal of this classification is most often used to weld base metals of similar composition. Executive 310 Data Sheet Executive 310 MSDS
Executive 312 ER312 Filler metal of this classification was originally designed to weld cast alloys of similar composition. It also has been found to be valuable in welding dissimilar metals such as carbon steel to stainless steel, particularly those grades high in nickel. This alloy gives a two-phase weld deposit with substantial percentages of ferrite in an austenite matrix. Even with considerable dilution by austenite-forming elements such as nickel, the microstructure remains two-phase and thus highly resistant to weld metal cracks and fissures. Executive 312 Data Sheet Executive 312 MSDS
Executive 316L ER316/316L Low carbon in this filler metal reduces the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation. This increases the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. Strength of this low-carbon alloy, however, is less than that of the niobium-stabilized alloys or Type 316H at elevated temperatures. Executive 316L Data Sheet Executive 316L MSDS
Executive 316LSi ER316LSi This classification is the same as ER316L, except for the higher silicon content. This improves the usability of the filler metal in the gas metal arc welding process. If the dilution by the base metal produces a low ferrite or fully austenitic weld, the crack sensitivity of the weld is somewhat higher than that of a lower silicon content weld metal. Executive 316LSi Data Sheet Executive 316LSi MSDS
Executive 317L ER317L Used for welding alloys of similar composition. ER317 filler metal is utilized in severely corrosive environments where crevice and pitting corrosion are of concern. Executive 317L Data Sheet Executive 317L MSDS
Executive 320 ER320 Filler metal of this classification is primarily used to weld base metals of similar composition for applications where resistance to severe corrosion involving a wide range of chemicals, including sulfuric and sulfurous acids and their salts, is required. This filler metal can be used to weld both castings and wrought alloys of similar composition without post weld heat treatment. Executive 320 Data Sheet Executive 320 MSDS
Executive 320LR ER320LR This classification has the same basic composition as ER320; however, the elements C, Si, P, and S are specified at lower maximum levels and the Nb and Mn are controlled at narrower ranges. These changes reduce the weld metal hot cracking and fissuring (while maintaining the corrosion resistance) frequently encountered in fully austenitic stainless steel weld metals. Consequently, welding practices typically used for austenitic stainless steel weld metals containing ferrite can be used in bare filler metal welding processes such as gas tungsten arc and gas metal arc. Executive 320LR Data Sheet Executive 320LR MSDS
Executive 330 ER330 Filler metal of this type is commonly used where heat and scale resisting properties above 1800°F (980°C) are required, except in high sulfur environments, as these environments may adversely affect elevated temperature performance. Repairs of defects in the alloy castings and the welding of castings and wrought alloys of similar composition are the most common applications. Executive 330 Data Sheet Executive 330 MSDS
Executive 347 ER347 Usually used for welding chromium-nickel stainless steel base metals of similar composition stabilized with either Nb or Ti. Although Nb is the stabilizing element usually specified in Type 347 alloys, it should be recognized that tantalum (Ta) is also present. Ta and Nb are almost equally effective in stabilizing carbon and in providing high-temperature strength. If dilution by the base metal produces a low ferrite or fully austenitic weld metal, the crack sensitivity of the weld may increase substantially Executive 347 Data Sheet Executive 347 MSDS
Exocor 385 (904L) ER385 Used primarily for welding materials for the handling of sulfuric acid and many chloride containing media. ER385 filler metal also may be used to join Type 317L material where improved corrosion resistance in specific media is needed. The elements C, S, P, and Si are specified at lower maximum levels to minimize weld metal hot cracking and fissuring (while maintaining corrosion resistance) frequently encountered in fully austenitic weld metals. Exocor 385 (904L) Data Sheet Exocor 385 (904L) MSDS
Executive 409Cb ER409Nb The Columbium (aka Niobium) addition in ER409Cb forms carbides to improve corrosion resistance, increase strength at high temperature, and promote the ferritic microstructure. ER409Cb filler metals may be used to join matching or dissimilar base metals. The greatest usage is for applications where thin stock is fabricated into exhaust system components. The copper coating technology creates a smooth and uniform copper layer on the wire surface that remarkably improves the weldability of the wire. Executive 409Cb Data Sheet Executive 409Cb MSDS
Executive 410 ER410 This 12 Cr alloy (wt.-%) is an air-hardening steel. Preheat and postweld heat treatments are required to achieve welds of adequate ductility for many engineering purposes. The most common application of filler metal of this type is for welding alloys of similar composition. It is also used for deposition of overlays on carbon steels to resist corrosion, erosion, or abrasion. Executive 410 Data Sheet Executive 410 MSDS
Executive 410NiMo ER410NiMo Filler metal of this classification is primarily designed for welding ASTM CA6NM castings or similar material, as well as light-gauge 410, 410S and 405 base metals. ER410NiMo is modified to contain less chromium and more nickel to eliminate ferrite in the microstructure as it has a deleterious effect on mechanical properties. Final postweld heat treatment should not exceed 1150°F (620°C) as higher temperatures may result in re-hardening due to untempered martensite in the microstructure after cooling to room temperature. Executive 410NiMo Data Sheet Executive 410NiMo MSDS
Exocor 430 ER430 The composition is balanced by providing sufficient chromium to give adequate corrosion resistance for the usual applications, and yet retain sufficient ductility in the heat treated condition. (Excessive chromium will result in lower ductility.) Welding with filler metal of the ER430 classification usually requires preheating and postweld heat treatment. Exocor 430 Data Sheet Exocor 430 MSDS
Executive 2209 (Duplex) ER2209 Filler metal of this classification is used primarily to weld duplex stainless steels which contain approximately 22% chromium such as UNS S31803 and S32205. Deposits of this alloy have "duplex" microstructures consisting of an austenite-ferrite matrix. These stainless steels are characterized by high tensile strength, resistance to stress corrosion cracking, and improved resistance to pitting. Executive 2209 (Duplex) Data Sheet Executive 2209 (Duplex) MSDS
Exocor 2594 (Super Duplex) ER2594 It is designed for the welding of superduplex stainless steels UNS S32750 and 32760 (wrought), and UNS 593380, J93404(cast). It can also be used for the welding of UNS S32550, 593370, J93372 when not subject to sulfurous or sulfuric acids in service. It can also be used for the welding of carbon and low alloy steels to duplex stainless steels as well as to weld 'standard' duplex stainless steel such as UNS S32205 and J92205 especially for root runs in pipe.

Executive 630 (17/4PH) ER630 The composition is designed primarily for welding ASTM A564 Type 630 and some other precipitation-hardening stainless steels. The composition is modified to prevent the formulation of ferrite networks in the martensitic microstructure which have a deleterious effect on mechanical properties. Dependent on the application and weld size, the weld metal may be used as-welded; welded and precipitation hardened; or welded, solution treated, and precipitation hardened. Executive 630 (17/4PH) Data Sheet Executive 630 (17/4PH) MSDS
Executive 439Ti ER439 Executive 439Ti is a copper coated stainless steel wire primarily used for the welding of automotive stainless steel exhaust systems and components. The coating technology creates a smooth and uniform copper layer on the wire surface that remarkably improves the weldability of the wire. Executive 439Ti Data Sheet Executive 439Ti MSDS
