Stainless Steel Electrodes

BATOX-16/8/2

AWS: SFA 5.4 E16-8-2-15

Batox-16/8/2 is a basic coated, stainless steel electrode depositing 15.5Cr – 8.5Ni – 1.3Mo stainless steel weld metal. Electrodes provide excellent operating characteristics with easy slag detachability. The lean composition of weld metal minimize the in-service formation of inter-metallic compound, excellent hot ductility properties which offer freedom from weld or crater cracking even under high-restraint conditions. This lean version weld metal is ideally suited for welding stainless steels, such as types 16-8-2, 304H, 316H and 347H for high pressure, high temperature piping systems, and catalytic cracker structures.

Precaution

1. Re-dry the electrodes at 250-300°C for one hour, as per our standard recommended practice.

2. Use short arc, stringer bead, smallest size of electrode and minimum current to ensure minimum heat input.
