Executive Stainless Steel products consist of high quality solid wires, flux cored wires and coated electrodes, all with excellent operator appeal.
Executive 316/316L provides superior weldability, low spatter and smooth beads with easy slag removal. This electrode can be used in all positions when welding as root runs in butt welds and thin plates in general.
The 0.04 percent maximum carbon content of weld metal deposited by these electrodes reduces the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation and thereby increases the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. Tests have shown that 0.04 percent carbon limit in the weld metal gives adequate protection against intergranular corrosion in most cases.
This low-carbon alloy, however, is not as strong at elevated temperatures as Type E316H. E316L with maximum ferrite content of 2 FN has traditionally been the choice for welding Types 304 and 316 stainless steels for cryogenic service at temperatures down to -452°F (-269°C).
For over twenty-five years Exocor has been a respected name in the industry as a reliable source of filler metals.
