Cromarod 347 is a niobium stabilised, rutile flux coated electrode used for welding the Nb or Ti stabilised 18% Cr/ 10% Ni austenitic stainless steel grades 347 and 321.
It is also suitable for the unstabilised grades 304 and 304L. Cromarod 347 is primarily intended for use where resistance to intergranular corrosion is required. For welding the controlled carbon material grades 321H and 347H, used for structural applications at temperatures above 400 ¡C, Cromarod 308H is recommended because of its superior creep strength. -The electrode has good positional characteristics and produces low spatter levels and good slag detachability.
