A molybdenum bearing, highly alloyed 23Cr/12Ni/2.5Mo extra low carbon rutile type stainless steel electrode, exhibiting superior all positional (except vertical down) performance with an improved moisture resistant coating for weld metal of high radiographic integrity.

The smooth arc action of Staincord 309Mo-16, together with low spatter and excellent slag control/detachability, promotes exceptional weld appearance and profile.

Typical Applications

Suitable for welding of matching 309 and 309Mo base metals and a wide range of 300 and 400 series stainless steels to alloyed and non-alloyed dissimilar ferrous metal combinations.
