Item Details

  • Avesta Welding ER316L Stainless Steel TIG Welding Rod measuring .035" X 36" Dia is used for welding austenitic stainless steel such as 17 Cr, 12 Ni, 2.5 Mo or similar. It is compatible with titanium and niobium stabilized steels including ASTM 316Ti. Rod ideal for the constructions below 400 deg C is perfect for unalloyed/low-alloyed steel to stainless steel welding and surfacing of unalloyed steel with stainless steel. It renders a low carbon Mo-alloyed type 18/13/3 weld metal with superior corrosion resistance. Rod having higher silicon content provides nicer weld bead appearance with improved fluidity and reduced spatter. Rod comes in a 10 lb tube.


  • AVESTA 316L is designed for welding austenitic stainless steel type 17 Cr 12 Ni 2.5 Mo or similar, where high resistance to general and inter crystalline corrosion is required
  • It is also suitable for welding titanium and niobium stabilized steels such as ASTM 316Ti in cases where the construction will be used at temperatures not exceeding 752°F (400°C)
  • For higher temperatures a niobium stabilized consumable such as AVESTA 318/SKNb is required
  • Avesta Welding also supplies a type 316L wire with high silicon content (0.85 %) named AVESTA 316L
  • The higher silicon content will improve fluidity and weld bead appearance
  • Improved fluidity
  • Minimal spatter
  • Nicer weld bead appearance


  • AWS A5.9
  • EN 12072 19 12 3 L


  • Sheet metal applications on the appropriate stainless steel base metals
  • High pressure piping and tubing
