Executive Stainless Steel products consist of high quality solid wires, flux cored wires and coated electrodes, all with excellent operator appeal.

Executive 316/316L


Executive 316/316L provides superior weldability, low spatter and smooth beads with easy slag removal. The typical molybdenum gives improved resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion over grades 308L and 309L, particularly in the presence of chlorides.
This wire is designed to be used in the flat/horizontal position. 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.

This is also available in a thin gauge (TG) Executive 316/316LTG in .045" diameter for thin plate welding. It offers wider current ranges (as low as 85 Amps) typically only achieved with costly .035" wire, thus offering a substantial savings.


For over twenty-five years Exocor has been a respected name in the industry as a reliable source of filler metals. 
Our corporate office is ISO 9001:2015 certified with memberships in AWS, CWA and GAWDA, and approvals on certain products such as CWB, LLOYDS, and EN.
