D&H 16/8/2 is a rutile 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.
1. Re-dry the electrodes at 350°C for two hours.
2. Use short arc, stringer bead, and smallest size of electrode, minimum current to ensure minimum heat input.
