ISOARC 308L permits welding at the lowest possible amperage in flat, vertical, horizontal or
overhead positions Deposition is fast and smooth with low spatter and good slag detach-ability.
Use for joining or cladding of 18-8 chrome nickel stainless steel requiring similar deposit
as the base metal. Ideal for steel types 301, 302, 304, 305, 308, 321, 347.
To avoid heat accumulation, keep a short arc and use low amperage with stringer bead technique.
Remove the slag after each pass. On DC equipment use positive polarity. On long seams, tack at
short intervals to reduce distortion
Should electrodes become moist re-dry at 350°C for 1 hour
