Cryo-Shield 316L is all position flux cored wire adaptable to a variety of shop and field erection applications. Designed for cryogenic applications where good weld metal toughness is required. Cryo-Shield 316L was developed for the welding of type 316, 316L austenitic stainless steels for the low temperatures. It contains molybdenum which resists pitting corrosion induced by sulphuric and sulphurous acids, chlorides and cellulose solutions. Cryo-Shield 316L was designed titania based slag system with excellent slag removal so they can have high welding speeds because of possible welding in all position in high current area.
