Expanded Stainless Steel Filler Metal Offering

Hobart has renewed its focus on stainless steel filler metals and expanded product offerings in this lineup, with new stainless options in solid wires and flux-cored wires.

Hobart has expanded its stainless steel filler metal offering as part of a renewed emphasis on this portfolio, adding options in solid wire and flux-cored wire. The comprehensive portfolio of stainless Hobart filler metals also includes stick electrodes and metal-cored wires.

Additions to the Hobart stainless product lineup include solid wires now in bulk packaging, with the ER308LSi and ER309LSi wires in .035" and .045" diameters available in 550 lb. drums. Hobart has also added three new products to the FabCO flux-cored stainless steel wire offering: FabCO 308LT1, FabCO 309LT1 and FabCO 316LT1. All three wires are available in .045" and 1/16" diameters in 27-1/2 lb., vacuum packaged spools. Changes have also been made to stainless steel stick electrode packaging, which now includes smaller sizes to better reflect customer needs. These stick electrodes offer enhanced arc starting and restrikes and, similar to the stainless steel flux-cored wires, provide easy slag release and a smooth bead appearance.

Stainless steel filler metals are increasingly used in numerous industry applications, including petrochemical and medical applications.

"Stainless steel is the second most common material our customers are welding, behind carbon steel, and we wanted to enhance our offerings to better reflect industry needs," said Jonathan Will, Product Manager, Hobart. "Just like our other filler metals, our stainless steel offerings are superior products that provide consistent results, with the exceptional arc stability, spatter level and bead appearance."

Hobart is also offering a free stainless steel filler metal brochure for download to help users with stick electrode and wire selection. To order a hard copy of the brochure, contact Hobart via the literature request form
