CLASSIFICATIONS: E316HT1-1, E316HT1-4 per AWS A5.22 (Also meets E316T1-1, E316T1-4 per AWS 5.22)

This flux cored, stainless steel electrode has a nominal weld metal composition of 19% chromium, 12% nickel, 2.5% molybdenum and a carbon content of .04-.08%. The higher carbon content improves the elevated temperature strength. The presence of molybdenum augments resistance to pitting while providing increased creep resistance.

APPLICATIONS: SelectAlloy 316H-AP finds application in the pulp and paper industry, chemical and textile processing equipment, furnace parts and in parts exposed to marine environments. It is used to weld Type 316H stainless steel.
