- Products and Services A - Z
- Produces smooth, clean, defect-free welds in all grades of stainless steel.
- Produces low distortion, spatter and good fusion. Results in clean, bright welds with a flat profile, reducing post-weld cleaning.
- Provides excellent positional welding characteristics, which are advantageous for fabricating large metal components.
- Commonly used in the MIG welding of components of thicknesses of up to 3mm.
- Suitable for both manual and automatic applications.
- Used for a variety of applications from welding automotive components such as exhausts, to sheet metal components including heating and ventilation ducting.
- Specifically formulated for dip transfer with solid wire, producing minimal spatter.
Material specific applications
The following tabled data provides you with a guide to materials and welding processes with which Stainshield Light can be used:
- Austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels
- Nickel alloys (not Monels)
Austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels
|MIG welding||Stainshield Light is most widely used in the MIG welding of components in the thickness range of 0.5 mm to 3 mm. The product is suitable for both manual and automatic applications.||Automotive components such as exhaust, Sheet metal components such as heating and ventilation ducting||Low distortion, spatter and good fusion|
Nickel alloys (not Monels)
|MIG welding||As with stainless steel Stainshield Light is best used to MIG weld nickel alloys of thickness of 3mm and below. Only the Monel alloys are not recommended with this shielding gas.|
