Exaton 22.8.3.LSi is designed for gas shielded arc welding of duplex stainless steels, such as Sandvik SAF 2205 and Sandvik SAF 2304. Its corrosion resistance is equal to ASTM 904L in most applications. It combines high strength with excellent ductility. Exaton 22.8.3.LSi can also be used for joining Sandvik SAF 2205 or Sandvik SAF 2304 to carbon steel or low-alloy steels. It can be used for plasma welding and overlay welding using hot wire TIG and mechanical TIG.
