Product Overview

  • AVESTA 316L/SKR-3D is a Cr-Ni-Mo high recovery electrode for welding ASTM 316 and 316L stainless steels.

        Avesta 3D range has been specially developed for flexible welding in all common welding positions.

        A short arc is to be used for welding.


        The slag is self-releasing and leaves an even, beautiful weld finish, even if double-sided welding is always to be preferred,

        3D electrodes give good results in single-sided welding. Weaving is essential in vertical-up welding.

        Welding current can be either DC+ or AC. However, DC+ always gives the best weldability.
