AWS A5.4 E308H-16
E308H electrodes contain highercarbonover 308for the welding of austenitic, highcarbon 18% Cr –8% Ni stainless steels such as AISI-304-H. The weld deposit of this electrode contains a 0.04-0.08% carbon, which provides higher tensile and creep strengths at elevated temperatures.USA 308Helectrodes have a high deposition rate resulting in excellent efficiency. This electrode may be used in all positions. USA 308Helectrodes may be usedjoint welds in construction parts for chemical engineering and cryogenic applications.
