Select 430NbL is a metal cored electrode designed for the welding of ferritic stainless steel materials used in automotive exhaust systems.

APPLICATIONS: Select 430NbL is utilized to weld heat and corrosion resistant, ferritic stainless steels used in exhaust system components including manifolds, converters, mufflers and tubular parts of automotive systems made of 430 grade materials.

DIAMETERS: .045", 1/16"

SHIELDING GAS: 80-95% Ar/balance CO2, 40-55 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Specially formulated to produce tough, fine grained weld metal.
  • Faster travel speeds, less burn through, reduced spatter means greater productivity.
  • Handles poor fit up and gaps, easier to weld with than solid wire.
