Print Sheet  


CLASSIFICATIONS: EC317L per AWS A5.22
(Also meets EC317 per AWS A5.22)

SelectAlloy 317L-C is designed with a nominal weld composition of 19.5% chromium, 14% nickel, 3.5% molybdenum and a maximum carbon content of .03%. This metal cored, stainless steel electrode delivers a higher level of molybdenum to improve resistance to pitting and provides increased creep resistance. The low carbon content of SelectAlloy 317L-C minimizes carbide precipitation and makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion.

APPLICATIONS: Due to its exceptional resistance to pitting corrosion, SelectAlloy 317L-C is an excellent choice for applications involving solutions of sulfuric acid and sulfur bearing gases. Used to weld Types 316 and 317 stainless steel, SelectAlloy 317L-C is utilized in the pulp and paper industry as well as in food and pharmaceutical processing equipment.

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

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