Solid Wire Electrode BA-WIRE 318 for Submerged Arc Welding
EN ISO 14343-A: S 19 12 3 Nb
SFA 5.9 / AWS A5.9: ER318
BA-WIRE 318 is a submerged arc welding wire intended for welding 19Cr/12Ni/3Mo stabilized Ti grades like 1.4571 / 316Ti. Also suitable for the welding of similar unstabilized grades 316 or 316L. BA-WIRE 318 is suitable for service temperatures from -120 °C to +400 °C and has high resistance to intergranular corrosion.

Suitable flux: WP 380
Flux type suitability is strongly dependent on its application. In combination with the wire electrode the most suitable flux should match the requirements of the plate material as closely as possible under the existing welding conditions. Further information can be obtained from the technical flux data sheets.
Coils, spools, drums and spiders as standard package forms for SAW-wire electrodes, different package forms on request.
