ER308/308L is used for welding types 304, 304L, 308, and 308L stainless steels. It is very

 

similar to type 308, but has a carbon content held to a max of .03% to avoid carbide precipitation. This product can also be used for welding types 321 and 347 stainless steels. This wire is suitable for applications at cryogenic temperatures.

ER309/309L  is very similar to type 309 except for the carbon content being lower than .03%. The extra low carbon content provides good resistance to carbide precipitation and intergranular corrosion. ER309L works well for dissimilar joints that undergo heat treatment.

ER316/316L  is used for welding types 316 and 316L stainless steels. It has a maximum carbon content of .03% to reduce the possibility of formation of intergranular carbide precipitation. This low carbon alloy is not as strong as 316H at elevated temperatures. This filler metal is primarilyused for welding low carbon molybdenum bearing austenitic alloys.

Crown ER 630 (17-4 PH)
is used primarily in the aerospace and other high-technology industries. The nominal composition (wt
.%) of this classification is 16.4 Cr, 4.7 Ni, 3.6 Cu. The composition is designed primarily for welding ASTM
A 564 Type 630 and some other precipitation- hardening stainless steels such as 15-5. The composition is modified to prevent the formation of ferrite networks in the martensitic microstructure which have a deleterious effect on mechanical properties. Weld deposits provide excellent mechanical properties with high strength, hardness, corrosion resistance and moderate wear resistance. Dependent on the application and weld size, the weld metal may be used as-welded; welded and precipitation hardened; or welded, solution treated, and precipitation hardened.
