Stainless Steel Stick Electrodes

Murex 308/308L-16 E308-16, DC+ Intended for joining base metal type 304 or 304L stainless steel. 26
E308L-16 AC Can also be used to join other common austenitic stainless steel
referred to as “18-8” steels. Good all-position electrode, with the
exception of vertical down travel. Murex 308/308L-16 exhibits
exceptional vertical-up travel capabilities.

Murex 309-16 E309-16 DC+ Murex 309-16 is intended for joining stainless steels to 27
AC carbon steels or low alloy steels. Welds in all positions, except
vertical down. Exceptional vertical-up capability.

Murex 310-16 E310-16 DC+ This stick electrode is ideal for welding type 310 steels. May also 28
AC be used to weld types 410, 430 and 502 stainless steels. Good
all-position electrode, except vertical down. Exceptional vertical-up
capabilities.

Murex 316/316L-16 E316-16, DC+ Murex 316/316L-16 electrode is intended for joining types 29
E316L-16 AC 316 and 316L wrought steels. A good all-position electrode,
except vertical down. Exceptional vertical-up capabilities.

Stainless Steel MIG Wires

Murex MIG 308LSi ER308Si DC+ This all-position, quality MIG wire is ideally suited for joining 30 - 31
ER308LSi common austenitic stainless steel grades referred to as “18-8”
steels. It is specially processed to provide superior feeding and arc
stability.

Murex MIG 309LSi ER309Si DC+ All-position stainless steel wire for joining higher alloyed 32 - 33
ER309LSi austenitic stainless steels. Can also be used on “18-8” steels
since it overmatches the corrosion resistance, if the weldment will
not be exposed to temperatures of 1000 to 1700°F (538 to 927°C).

Murex MIG 316LSi ER316Si DC+ All-position stainless steel wire. The undiluted weld metal is 34 - 35
ER316LSi designed to contain considerable ferrite for high crack
resistance in 316L joining and cladding. Can also be used on “18-8”
stainless steels.

Stainless Steel Cut Length TIG Consumables

Murex TIG 308/308L ER308 DC- This cut length TIG consumable is for use on the more common 36
ER308L austenitic stainless steel grades referred to as “18-8” steels.

Murex TIG 309/309L ER309 DC- For use on more high alloyed austenitic stainless steels. Can also 37
ER309L be used on “18-8” steels since it overmatches the corrosion
resistance if the weldment will not be exposed to temperatures of
1000 to 1700°F (538 to 927°C).

Murex TIG 316/316L ER316 DC- Undiluted weld metal is designed to contain considerable ferrite for 38
ER316L maximum crack resistance. Should not be used on 316L joints in
service for urea manufacture, as this environment will attack the ferrite.

PACKAGING TYPES

STICK ELECTRODES
Murex stick electrodes are packaged in either cartons or hermetically sealed
easy-open cans. Unopened cans of electrode will retain their proper moisture
content indefinitely when stored in good condition.

Cartons are available in the 50 lb. (23 kg) size and easy open cans come in
several weight sizes from 8 to 50 lbs. (4 to 23 kg).

CUT LENGTH TIG CONSUMABLES


• Available in 36” (914mm) lengths.
• 10 lb. cardboard carton.
• Double coined for ease of identification.

SMALL WIRE PACKAGING


No matter what your need, Murex
has a package option for almost any
project. For example, small pack-
ages include coils or plastic, fiber
and steel spools in weights from 2
to 60 lbs. (0.9 to 27 kg).

PLASTIC SPOOL FIBER SPOOL STEEL SPOOL COIL

BULK WIRE PACKAGING


Accu-Trak™ Drum
The Accu-Trak Drum wire system is a bulk wire package designed specifically for MIG wire. Built
to deliver consistent performance in conventional automation and robotics, Accu-Trak Drums also
perform well in semiautomatic applications.
The Accu-Trak Drum wire system accurately places the wire in the weld joint throughout the
welding process.

• The Accu-Trak Drum requires a K884-5 (500 lb.) or K884-6 (1000 lb.) Accu-Trak Drum Payoff Kit
to ensure accurate feeding.

Improved wire feedability and reduced tangling will propel your productivity to the next level with
Murex Accu-Trak bulk products. Field-tested and approved, many customers have experienced
improved performance and accurate wire placement. Check it out and see the difference for
yourself!

Accu-Trak™ Reel
Like the Accu-Trak Drum, the Accu-Trak Reel delivers twist-free wire
and accurately places it in the weld joint.

• The K895-2 Rotary Wire Dispenser is necessary to payoff the ACCU-TRAK™ DRUM
Accu-Trak Reel.

Speed Feed® Reel


The Speed Feed Reel is designed to provide maximum flexibility.
The reels are specially wound to ease feeding for steady, easy
dispensing. They are used with a dereeler which rotates the reel
and provides accurate wire placement in the weld joint.

NOTES

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and Certificates of Conformance are available on our web site at www.lincolnelectric.com.

NOTE 1: JOINING ELECTRODES, NON-CHARPY V-NOTCH RATED

These electrodes and others of the same AWS classification, are not required to deposit weld metal capable of delivering any minimum specified Charpy V-Notch (CVN) properties. It
should not be used in applications where minimum specified CVN properties are required. Typical applications where minimum specified CVN properties are required include, but are
not restricted to, bridges, pressure vessels, and buildings in seismic zones. The user of this product is responsible for determining whether minimum CVN properties are required for the
specific application.

NOTE 2: JOINING ELECTRODES, NON-LOW HYDROGEN

These electrodes and others of the same AWS classification, are not required to deposit weld metal that is low in diffusible hydrogen. Therefore, these electrodes should not be used in
applicationns where the hydrogen content of the weld metal is required to be controlled.

TEST RESULTS

Test results for mechanical properties, deposit or electrode composition and diffusible hydrogen levels were obtained from a weld produced and tested according to prescribed standards,
and should not be assumed to be the expected results in a particular application or weldment. Actual Test Results will vary depending on many factors, including, but not limited to, weld
procedure, plate chemistry and temperature, weldment design and fabrication methods. Users are cautioned to confirm by qualification testing, or other appropriate means, the suitability of
any welding consumable and procedure before use in the intended application.

CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE POLICY


The business of The Lincoln Electric Company is manufacturing and selling high quality welding equipment, consumables, and cutting equipment. Our challenge is to meet the
