Bare, corrosion-resistant, chromium-nickel-man-ganese welding rods for welding austenitic stainless alloys of the 18% Cr, 8% Ni, 7% Mn types. ES TIG 307 has general corrosion resistance similar to that of the corresponding parent metal.
The higher silicon content improves the welding properties such as wetting. When used for joining dissimilar materials, the corrosion resist-ance is of secondary importance.
The alloy is used in a wide range of applications across the industry, such as the joining of austenitic, man- ganese, work-hardenable steels, as well as armour plate and heat-resistant steels.
