E316L-16

AWS A5.4 E316L-16
ASME SFA 5.4 E316L-16

E316L electrodes produce weld deposits similar to that of E316, but with a maximum 0.04% carbon. This extra low carbon content gives the weld deposit excellent resistance against intergranular corrosion caused by carbide precipitation. E316L electrodes are used for welding 18% Cr – 12% Ni – 2.5% Mo stainless steels where the corrosion resistant qualities of AISI 316L are required. This electrode has a high deposition rate and produces a weld deposit with fine bead appearance and exceptional crack-resistance. E316L electrodes are most commonly used in the textile, paper, cellulose, and chemical equipment industries for the fabrication of 316L, 318 and 319L stainless steel products.
