 Print Sheet


CLASSIFICATIONS: ECG per AWS A5.22

This metal cored electrode is designed for the welding of ferritic stainless steel materials and features an extremely stable arc that reduces burn-through. The higher chrome content I Select 430LCb-Mod, combined with stabilization from niobium and titanium, provides similar heat and corrosion resistance to the base materials which are welded.

APPLICATIONS:Select 430LCb-Mod welds heat resistant, corrosion resistant, ferritic stainless steels used in the exhaust system components including 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:

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