SANDVIK 18.8.

WELDING WIRE
DATASHEET

Sandvik 18.8.Mn is a filler material is a filler metal of AWS ER 307 type with increased managanese content,
reducing the risk for fissuring/hot cracking that otherwise can be a problem in fully austenitic weld metals. It is
similar to ER 307 type suitable for joining work-hardenable steels, armor plate, austenitic stainless manganese
steels, free-machining steels (such as ASTM 303) and stainless Cr steels with max. 18% Cr.

The grade is used, for example, in the automotive industry for joining dissimilar steels as well as tractor trailers and
passenger rail cars. It is also suitable for overlay welding on carbon and low-alloy steels. Sandvik 18.8.Mn is
available as wire and rods for MIG/MAG, TIG and plasma-arc welding.

CORROSION RESISTANCE - ALL WELD METAL


Sandvik 18.8.Mn has corrosion resistance similar to that of the of the corresponding parent metal. For joints
between non alloyed or low alloyed steels and stainless steels, resistance to corrosion is of secondary
importance.

FABRICATION
MIG welding
Electrode positive is used to give good penetration in all types of welded joint. The following table shows common
conditions for MIG welding.

Sandvik can provide recommendations for shielding gases.

– Short-arc welding is used with light gauge material of less than about 3 mm (0.118 in.), in depositing root
runs, and in welding out-of-flat positions.
– The higher the inductance in short-arc welding, the higher the fluidity of the molten pool.
– Spray-arc welding is normally used for heavier gauge material.

2 SANDVIK 18.8.MN
TIG welding
The parameters for TIG welding depend largely upon the base metal thickness and the welding application.

Electrode negative and a shielding gas of argon or helium should be used to prevent oxidation of the weld metal.

Disclaimer: Recommendations are for guidance only, and the suitability of a material for a specific application can be confirmed
only when we know the actual service conditions. Continuous development may necessitate changes in technical data without
notice. This datasheet is only valid for Sandvik materials.
