The following items have been added to your list


Exaton 19.12.3.LR is a chromium-nickel-molybdenum covered electrode with rutile coating for welding of low carbon, molybdenum alloyed, austenitic stainless steels of 316L (1.4436) type. Exaton 19.12.3.LR is used for welding steel of the types ISO: 1.4401, 1.4404, 1.4435, 1.4436, 1.4571 and ASTM: 316, 316L, 316LN, 316H and 316Ti. In cases where creep strength is of secondary importance, Exaton 19.12.3.LR is suitable for welding of corresponding stabilized austenitic steels. When a weld metal similar to the parent metal is not required, Exaton 19.12.3.LR can be used for welding ferritic and martensitic steels.
