CLASSIFICATIONS: E317LT1-1. E317LT1-4 per AWS A5.22
(Also meets E317T1-1, E317T1-4 per AWS A5.22)

This all position, stainless steel electrode has a nominal weld metal composition of 19.5% chromium, 13% nickel, 3.5% molybdenum and a maximum carbon content of .04%. SelectAlloy 317L-APís higher level of molybdenum improves resistance to pitting and provides increased creep resistance.

APPLICATIONS: Containing a higher molybdenum content than 316L-AP gives SelectAlloy 317L-AP better resistance to pitting corrosion. This electrode offers excellent resistance to solutions of sulfuric acid and sulfur bearing gases. It is used to weld types 316 and 317 stainless. SelectAlloy 317L-AP is ideal for applications in the pulp and paper industry and for welding food and pharmaceutical equipment.

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

SHIELDING GASES: 100% CO2, 75-80% Ar/balance CO2, 40-50 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: All Positions

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Low carbon content minimizes carbide precipitation, maximizes resistance to intergranular corrosion.
  • Resists pitting corrosion.
  • Achieves flat, well-washed beads with minimal weaving.
  • Produces very low spatter.
  • Reduces cleanup due to exceptional slag peeling.
