For recommended shielding gases, see Sandvik brochure, Stainless Welding Products, reference S-236, page 14. Short-arc welding is used with thin gauge material of less than about 3 mm, in depositing root runs, and in welding out-of-at positions. The higher the inductance in short-arc welding, the higher the uidity of the molten pool. Spray-arc welding is normally used for heavier gauge material. Pulsed-arc welding with pure argon as a shielding gas is recommended as the rst alternative.
TIG welding

Thermal expansion per C, from 20 to 400 C Density, g/cm3, at 20 C

The parameters for TIG welding depend largely upon the base metal thickness and the welding application. Electrode negative and a shielding gas of argon or helium should be used to prevent oxidation of the weld metal. See Sandvik brochure, Stainless Welding Products, reference S-236, page 14.
