Solid Wire Electrode BA-WIRE 316H for Submerged Arc Welding
SFA 5.9 / AWS A5.9: ER316H
BA-WIRE 316H is a submerged arc welding wire intended for welding austenitic stainless steels that will operate at high temperatures500-800°C, under long term creep conditions. BA-WIRE 316H is also suitable for welding 321/321H and 347/347H grades in high temperature service. Recommended for welding steam piping, super heater headers for the petro-chemical industry and power plants.

Suitable fluxes: BF 38, 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.
