Advantages of the Satin Glide™ Welding Wire

The high-temperature resistance of the Satin Glide™ 316L stainless-steel welding wire means it can be used in elevated temperature environments. This can help achieve incredibly strong welds that support the integrity of the structure being welded. It also promotes excellent weldability that produces clean and smooth weld beads that improve the weld’s integrity.

Shielding Gas Blends for Satin Glide® Welding Wire

When it comes to shielding gas blends, Satin Glide® can be used with a variety of options, such as:

  • Short Circuit Transfer: 90% Helium, 7-1/2% Argon, 2-1/2% CO2
  • Spray Transfer: 95-98% Argon, 2-5% CO2
  • Spray Transfer: 98-99% Argon, 1-2% O2
  • Flow rate: 35-50 CFH

All-position welding is possible with Satin Glide® as long as the correct shielding gas blends, welding process, and welding parameters are used.

Stainless-Steel Welding Wire Industry Standards

Satin Glide® meets or exceeds several specifications, including:

  • AWS A5.9/A5.9M: ER316, ER316L
  • ASME SFA-A5.9: ER316, ER316L
  • ASME Section III Nuclear requirements

Stainless-Steel Welding Wire Storage Instructions

Storing welding wire is incredibly easy as it can be stored within its original sealed packaging, which is designed to prevent moisture, dust, and dirt from getting onto the wire. The packaging helps preserve the wire’s quality and performance.
