Stainless Steel Wires for Flux Cored Welding

Welding Consumables
Afrox Coremax 308LP

Coremax 308LP is an all-position flux cored wire for welding 304,


304L and 321 type austenitic stainless steels. It has excellent
weldability and slag detachment and provides good resistance
to intergranular corrosion. Coremax 308LP can also be used as a
buffer layer prior to hardfacing.

Metrode Supercore 308HP


Welding Consumables

Supercore 308HP is designed to match unstabilised 18% Cr,


10% Ni austenitic stainless steels for elevated temperature
strength and oxidation resistance. These steels and the weld
metal have carbon content controlled to 0,04 - 0,08%. The 308H
consumables should also be considered for welding thick (>12
mm) stabilised grades 321H or 347H to avoid in-service HAZ
cracking and low creep rupture ductility associated with 347 weld
metal. Note that some authorities recommend the use of 16-8-2
types for these steels, including 304H.

Afrox Coremax 309LP

Welding Consumables
Coremax 309LP is an all-position flux cored wire for welding
24% Cr, 13% Ni type austenitic stainless steels in the cast and
wrought forms. It has excellent weldability and slag detachment
and provides good resistance to intergranular corrosion. Coremax
309LP can also be used as a buffer layer prior to hardfacing and
for joining 300 grade stainless steel to mild steels.
