Product Name Notes
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 308
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 308
Universal 308 coated electrodes are used for welding unstabilized 18-8 stainless steels such as types 301, 302, 304, 305, and 308. Universal 308 electrodes provide corrosion resistance and physical properties...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 308L
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 308L
Universal 308L is the low carbon version of 308 and is designed for welding 304L stainless steel. The weld deposit contains a maximum of 0.04 carbon which minimizes the formation...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 309
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 309
Universal 309 electrodes are used for the welding of heat resisting type 309 stainless steel. Deposits retain strength and oxidation resistance up to 2000 degrees F. Typical applications include furnace...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 309L
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 309L
Universal 309L is the same as E309 with the exception of the carbon content. The lower carbon content permits this alloy when used in corrosive environments where it is necessary...
Aerospace Alloy -- AMS 5694 Universal 310 alloy is primarily used for welding type 310 stainless steels, dissimilar steels and such types as 405, 410 and 430 steels when preheat and postheat are not practical.
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310 Cb
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310 Cb
Universal 310 Cb electrodes are the same as the 310 electrodes except for the addition of columbium and the reduction in the carbon content. This alloy is especially useful in...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310
Universal 310 electrodes were developed for the welding of 310 stainless steel. The deposited weld metal exhibits the same chemical analysis and oxidation resistance as the 310 base metal. Maintenance...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310 Mo
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 310 Mo
Universal 310Mo electrodes are used for the welding of the clad side of types 316, 316L, and 317 clad steels. This alloy is also used for welding other molybdenum bearing...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 312
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 312
Universal 312 electrodes were originally designed for the welding of high tensile alloys to high temperature heat resisting alloys on turbine engines. However, based upon performance these electrodes have found...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 316
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 316
Universal 316 electrodes are widely used in the fabrication of type 316 stainless steel as used in the manufacture of parts and equipment for the chemical and process industries. The...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 316L
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 316L
Universal 316L is the same as Alloy 316 except for the restricted carbon content. By holding the carbon content below 0.04% the chances of carbide precipitation is minimized thus protecting...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 317L
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 317L
Universal 317L electrodes are slightly higher in alloy content than type 316L, particularly in molybdenum and are used primarily for welding type 317 stainless steel. This electrode is used extensively...
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 320
Stainless Steel Alloy -- Universal 320
Universal 320 produces a fully austenitic deposit for welding Carpenter Stainless No. 20Cb 3 (wrought form) or Durimet 20 (cast form) or similar alloys. The 320 alloy was developed to...
Aerospace Alloy -- AMS 5776 Universal 410 is a ferritic stainless steel alloy, primarily used as filler metal for gas metal arc and gas tungsten arc welding of steels of similar composition. Deposits are resistanct...
Aerospace Alloy -- AMS 5825 Universal 630 (17Cr-4Ni) is a martensitic precipitation - age hardening stainless steel alloy. Alloy 630 can be welded with all welding processes without preheat; however, to obtain weld metal properties...
