Lincoln Electric® has introduced new GTAW (TIG) cut lengths, offered in high silicon formulations in three common stainless steel alloys.

The GTAW process allows for clean, high-quality welds with reduced spatter and welding fume.

“We’ve improved efficiency on the production front to provide more quality consistency that in turn, ensures the ultimate quality of the welding consumable,” said Sheena Suvak, Senior Product Manager of Welding Alloys at Lincoln Electric.

The new stainless steel Lincoln Electric GTAW cut lengths include:

  • Lincoln® ER308Si/308LSi – Best for 304 of 304L stainless steels and 18-8 steels
  • Lincoln® ER309Si/309LSi – Recommended for joining stainless steel to mild or low alloy steel
  • Lincoln® ER316Si/316LSi – For added corrosion resistance on molybdenum bearing austenitic stainless steel

Common features of the cut lengths include high silicon levels, clean surface treatment and AWS classification information.
