Grades of welding wire available include 308LSI; due to an increased carbon content this welding wire shows good strength at high temperatures, while a moderate amount of ferrite offers resistance to cracking and corrosion. 316LSI is an all-purpose stainless steel welding wire with a high silicon content which improves the fluidity of the weld metal and produce minimum of splatter. Duplex stainless steel welding wire 2209 provides good pitting and cracking resistance.
