OK Autrod 308L

A continuous solid corrosion resisting chromium-nickel wire. OK Autrod 308L has a good general corrosion resistance.The alloy has a low carbon content which makes this alloy particularly recommended were there is a risk of intergranular corrosion. The alloy is widely used in the chemical and food processing industries as well as for pipes, tubes and boilers. For joining of stainless steels of 18% Cr - 8% Ni-type and Nb-stabilized steels of the same type if the service temperature will not exceed 350°C.
