Sandvik 19.9.LR-16 (308/308L-16) is a covered chromium-nickel electrode with rutile-basic coating for welding of steels of ASTM 304 types as well as overlays giving 308 type composition.

The low carbon content reduces the susceptibility to intergranular carbide precipitation and intergranular corrosion without the use of stabilizers such as niobium or titanium. Due to the low carbon content, the high temperature strength will not be as high as 308H or 347 grades. For cryogenic applications down to -196°C (-452°F) use of Sandvik 19.9.LR-16 (308/308L-16) CRYO is recommended.

The coating for this electrode is of the American rutile type with a faster freezing rate over -17 Type of the same weld deposit chemistry.
The electrode has excellent arc stability and fast burn off rate with minimal stub loss. It is also characterized by improved moisture resistance, self-peeling slag, easy post weld finishing. Sandvik 19.9.LR-16 (308/308L-16) gives smooth uniform beads and works in any standard weld position.
