Possesses properties similar to 316/316H Sterling AP except with a much lower carbon content which reduces susceptibility to sensitization during welding. The welds show high resistance to corrosion and fissuring. This makes it an outstanding choice for critical applications. Excellent for welding stainless steel types 316, 316L and 318. It has a smooth running arc that results in a uniform weld bead that is flat to slightly convex.
