Staincord 316L-16 is a Molybdenum bearing, 19Cr/12Ni/2.5Mo extra low carbon, rutile type electrode exhibiting superior all positional (except vertical down) performance with an improved moisture resistant “Pink” flux coating for weld metal of high radiographic integrity. The smooth arc action of Staincord 316L-16, together with low spatter and excellent slag control/detachability, promotes exceptional weld appearance and profile. Other features include high arc stability and easy restriking on low voltage AC welding machines. Recommended for welding 316, 316L and common 300 series stainless steels such as 301, 302, 304 and 304L. Also suitable for welding ferritic stainless steel alloys such as 3Cr12.
