Sandvik 19.9.R-16 (308/308H-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. This electrode has the same composition as type 308 except the carbon restriction eliminates carbon content below 0.04%. Carbon content in the range 0.04-0.08 facilitates higher tensile and creep strengths at elevated temperatures. 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.R-16 (308/308H-16) gives smooth uniform beads and works in any standard weld position.
