Advantages of the Satin Glide™ Welding Wire

The Satin Glide™ 316L welding wire offers greater versatility that allows it to be used for dissimilar base metal welding for joining 316 and 316L-type metals as well as different materials together. Both its adaptability and ductility also allow it to excel in single- and multi-pass weldments along with different types of transfer modes in MIG welding operations.

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.
