CLASSIFICATION: E316LT0-3 per AWS A5.22 (Also meets E316T0-3 per AWS A5.22)

SelectAlloy 316LT0-3 is a self-shielded, flux cored, stainless steel wire designed with a nominal weld metal composition of 19% chromium, 12.5% nickel, 2.5% molybdenum and a maximum carbon content of 0.03%. The presence of molybdenum improves resistance to pitting and provides increased creep resistance. In addition, the low carbon content minimizes carbide precipitation and makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion.

APPLICATIONS: SelectAlloy 316LT0-3 is used to weld Type 316 stainless steel as well as for the cladding of carbon steels.

DIAMETERS: .035", .045", 1/16", 3/32"

SHIELDING GASES: Self-shielded

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Superb for surfacing or welding over gaps.
  • Produces a flat, well washed bead.
  • Provides a globular arc transfer with low spatter.

* The nitrogen levels in self-shielded stainless steel deposits can vary widely depending on the welding parameters used. Since nitrogen has a strong effect on the ferrite level (increasing nitrogen lowers the ferrite number), careful control of parameters is necessary to maintain consistent ferrite levels.
