CLASSIFICATIONS: No AWS class.

SelectAlloy 310G-C has a modified 310 chemistry with a nominal composition of 26% chromium, 20% nickel and 5% manganese. The addition of manganese in this gas-shielded, metal cored, stainless steel electrode reduces the tendency for hot cracking of this highly austenitic alloy.

APPLICATIONS: SelectAlloy 310G-C is used to weld 310 stainless steel, as well as 410 and 430 stainless steels when preheating or postweld heat treatments are not possible. This electrode is utilized when elevated temperatures are involved such as with equipment for heat treating, chemical and food processing.

DIAMETERS: .045", 1/16"

SHIELDING GASES: Ar/1-2% O2, Ar/1-2% CO2, 40-50 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Ideal for making small butt, lap and fillet welds on thin material.
  • Operates at higher travel speeds.
  • Handles poor fit-up.
  • Offers higher deposition rates and more controlled penetration than the equivalent solid wire.
  • Provides a smooth, spray arc transfer with low spatter and little or no slag.
