Item Details

  • Lincoln Electric® Blue Max® 316LSi/316Si Stainless Steel MIG Welding Wire is structured for extra low carbon molybdenum bearing austenitic stainless steels such as type 316LSi, 316Si. 25# Plastic spool wire of 0.030" Dia is utilized for joining and cladding 316L joints and overlays referred to as 18-8 steels while finds its application in ASTM A240 types 302,304, 304L ASTM A743 or A744 Types CF-8 and CF-3. Undiluted weld metal is designed to contain considerable ferrite for high crack resistance and having maximum silicon levels improves weld puddle fluidity and wetting, also comes in a bead shape. It features definite carbon content for better corrosion resistance and consists of balanced chromium and nickel levels to offers sufficient ferrite in the weld metal for high resistance to cracking.


  • Superior corrosion and crack resistance
  • High silicon level for increased puddle fluidity and toe wetting
  • Proprietary surface lubricant for steady feeding and arc stability
  • Versatile electrode designed to weld CrNi austenitic stainless steels Q2 Lot® - Certificate showing actual deposit chemistry and calculated ferrite number (FN)
  • Balanced chromium and nickel levels to provide enough ferrite in the weld metal for high resistance to cracking
  • Limited carbon content for improved corrosion resistance
  • Short Circuiting Transfer: 90% Helium / 7-1/2% Argon / 2-1/2% CO
  • Axial Spray Transfer: 98% Argon / Balance Oxygen
  • Common austenitic stainless steels referred to as -œ18-8- steels
