Stainless 308 & 316 Welding Electrodes

Ferritic/Martensitic stainless have chromium levels of 12% - 18% as the main alloying element and have carbon levels to enable air hardening to a predominantly martensitic structure. Accordingly, detailed attention must be paid to both pre-heat and PWHT during and after welding.
Standard austenitics are those in the ASTM 3XX series and should, in the main, be welded with matching electrodes and for all fabricational purposes should be considered non-hardenable, non-heat treatable and thus show no PWHT requirement.
