CLASSIFICATION: EC409 per AWS/ANSI A5.22, ASME SFA 5.22

Select 409Ti is a composite metal cored electrode for gas-shielded arc welding of ferritic stainless steels. This wire is formulated to produce improved bead wetting, faster travel speeds and a superb ability to bridge gaps and joints with poor fit up.

APPLICATIONS: Select 409Ti is expressly designed for welding automotive exhaust systems, especially manifolds, mufflers, converters and other components. It excels in the welding of tubing to these other components, particularly where there are gaps or generally poor fit up.

DIAMETERS: .045", .052", 1/16"

SHIELDING GAS: 98% Ar/2% O2, 40-55 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Excels in bridging gaps and joints with poor fit up.
  • Increases travel speeds for greater productivity.
  • Enhances bead geometry.
  • Extremely low spatter.
