ER308LT1

AWS A5.22 CLASS E 308LT1-1/4

E308TL1 is a flux cored wire for single or multi-pass welds on stainless steels. E308TL1 is noted for its low spatter generation, excellent bead shape and appearance and ease of slag removal. It has very good deposit efficiency when used for flat, overhead, verticle, and fillet welds of medium and heavy thickness plates. It has been designed to be used with 100% CO2 or 75-80% Argon + balance CO2 mixed shield gas. The high chromium and nickel content of E308TL1 provides weld deposits with scaling and heat resistance in addition to corrosion resistance. The extra
low carbon content of  E 308LT1 provides
excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion and stress corrosion cracking.

Applications:

E308LT-1 is used extensively in the fabrication of stainless steel structures, pressure vessels, tanks used in dairy, pulp and paper, textile dyeing, refinery and chemical equipment. The extra low carbon content reduces carbide precipitation.  E308LT-1 can be used to weld stainless steels of similar alloy composition including AISI 304L, 308L, 321 and 347 and whenever welds are required to meet structural and intergranular
corrosion resistance requirements
