Operability is excellent with a smooth low spatter arc producing an exceptionally good weld bead appearance. Fillet welds have a smooth surface, slightly concave profile with excellent toe line blend-in and a self-releasing slag. The electrode is all positional up to and including 3.25 mm diameter. Cromarod 316L is suitable for welding normal carbon 316 type grades and also Nb or Ti stabilised steels, provided service temperatures are below 400 °C. For 316 material grades used at elevated temperatures, Cromarod 318 is recommended.
