E308L-16 stainless steel stick welding electrode is to weld 18Cr-8Ni stainless steels AISI Types 301, 302, 304, 304L and 305, etc. Typical tensile strength of weld: 80,000 psi. Its low carbon content will reduce carbide precipitation thus increase the resistance to inter-granular corrosion. E308L-16 features smooth running arc with a uniform weld bead and good performance under severe conditions like oxidizing acids and cold or dilute-reducing acids.
