AWS E347-16 Welding Electrode


AWS Classification: E347-16
Electrode Type: Rutile-Cellulose Coated
Diameter Range: 1/16" to 5/32"
Current: Direct Current (DC+)


AWS Class E347-16 welding electrode is primarily designed for welding stabilized stainless steels of similar composition, such as AISI 321 and 347. These electrodes are suitable for a variety of applications including:

  • Fabrication of equipment in chemical and petrochemical industries
  • Welding of heat exchangers
  • Repair and maintenance of stainless steel components
  • Welding dissimilar stainless steels

Features and Benefits:

  • Rutile-cellulose coated electrode with excellent slag detachability.
  • Stabilized chemistry for improved corrosion resistance.
  • Suitable for both AC and DC welding currents.
  • Easy to use, suitable for all-position welding.
  • Provides a smooth and stable arc, resulting in clean welds.
  • Offers good mechanical properties and impact resistance.

Storage and Handling:

Store electrodes in a dry environment at temperatures between 50°F and 100°F (10°C to 38°C). Avoid exposure to moisture, high humidity, and extreme temperature fluctuations. Re-dry electrodes at 300°F (150°C) for 1 hour if exposed to excessive moisture.

Note: Other elements may include sulfur (S), phosphorus (P), and copper (Cu), which are typically kept to low levels for improved weld quality.
