Features and Applications

Austenitic stainless steel wire that has a low carbon content, which reduces the possibilities of intergranular carbide precipitation, while increasing the resistance to intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilisers such as niobium or titanium.

The presence of molybdenum provides creep resistance in a halide atmosphere.

Ideal for joining and surfacing of stainless steels of similar composition (CrNi and CrNiMo steels/cast steels). Including low-carbon molybdenum-bearing austenitic alloys.

Typically used in the food processing, dairy and chemical industries etc.
