ESAB Shield-Bright 316L X-tra is a FCAW wire for 18%Cr – 12%Ni – 2%Mo stainless steel. It was developed for the welding Type 316L stainless steel and also can be used for the other stainless steels including Types 316 and 304L. In a few cases, e.g. nitric acid service, Shield-Bright 316L X-tra should not be used to weld 304L. For flat and horizontal position welding. Designed specifically for applications where the service environment can produce pitting corrosion. Commonly used in the pulp and paper industry. Carbon content 0.04% maximum.

The Shield-Bright series of gas-shielded stainless cored wires produce superior operability for all-position welding applications by design. Regardless of position, the weld deposit will be flat, which is a quality provided by the faster freezing slag. With a rutile based slag system, Shield-Bright gas-shielded flux-cored wires always operate in the spray transfer mode and is able to weld at high currents with high deposition rates using mixed or CO2 shielding gas.

Shield-Bright wires have easy slag release, even in V butt joints. When not completely self-releasing, the slag can be removed with minimum effort. The spatter levels are nearly non-existent, allowing for additional savings in post-weld cleaning.
