Normally used for single pass applications on thin sheet metal materials, Select 430L-Cb is a metal cored electrode designed for the welding of ferritic stainless materials. Select 430L-Cb’s higher chrome content combined with the columbium (niobium) stabilization provides similar heat and corrosion resistance to the base metals which are welded.

APPLICATIONS: Select 430L-Cb is designed to weld heat resistant, corrosion resistant, ferritic stainless steels used in exhaust system components. Typical applications include manifolds, converters, mufflers and tubular components of automotive exhaust systems made of 430 grade materials.

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

SHIELDING GAS: 95-98% Ar/balance O2, 40-55 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Handles poor fit up and gaps. Easier to weld than solid wire.
  • Faster travel speeds, less burn through, less spatter means greater productivity.
  • Easy transition to spray transfer.
