TIG Filler Rod ER316L Stainless Steel

TIG welding filler rod 316 is a solid filler rod made of austenitic stainless steel with a low carbon content. It is used for welding 316 and 316L stainless steels, which are commonly used in applications where corrosion resistance is important, such as the chemical, food processing, and marine industries.

The 316 filler rod has a high chromium and nickel content, which gives it good corrosion resistance to a wide range of chemicals. It also has a molybdenum content, which further improves its resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.

The 316 filler rod can be welded using TIG welding, which is a gas tungsten arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode and an inert gas shield. TIG welding is a versatile process that can be used to weld a variety of materials, including stainless steel.

To weld 316 filler rod, the following equipment is required:

  • A TIG welding machine
  • A non-consumable tungsten electrode
  • An inert gas, such as argon
  • A welding torch
  • Filler rod 316

The welding parameters will vary depending on the thickness of the material being welded and the desired weld properties. However, in general, the following parameters are a good starting point:

  • Arc voltage: 10-15 volts
  • Arc current: 50-100 amps
  • Travel speed: 10-20 inches per minute

The 316 filler rod can be used to weld a variety of joints, including butt joints, lap joints, and fillet welds. When welding, it is important to ensure that the weld pool is protected from the atmosphere by the inert gas shield.

The 316 filler rod is a versatile and reliable material that can be used to weld a variety of stainless steel applications. It is a good choice for applications where corrosion resistance is important.

Here are some additional tips for welding with 316 filler rod:

  • Use a high-quality filler rod.
  • Clean the weld area thoroughly before welding.
  • Use the correct welding parameters.
  • Protect the weld pool from the atmosphere with an inert gas shield.
  • Be careful not to overheat the weld area.
