A strong addition of silicon to austenitic stainless steels of the 18/10 type has a favourable influence on resistance to transpassive intergranular corrosion. This type of corrosion develops particularly in very concentrated nitric environments (> 90 %) up to boiling point, also in strongly oxydising nitric environments (oxidising ions present such as : hexavalent chromium, pentalivalent vanadium – ferritic salts etc…)1.4361 has a chemical composition adapted to work in the transpassive zone. It resists perfectly to intergranular corrosion.

Welding 1.4361 requires well qualified welders. It is carried out both TIG and MIG processes (recommended technique) with our welding filler metal and under inert gas protection. Arc extingnishess are indispensable to avoid craters. It is also necessary to adapt speed and compatible amperage in order to limit the temperature between passes.
Heat treatment after welding is not necessary. For very severe conditions of use, it could be advisable. However, pickling after welding is necessary and then continue immediately with a passivation treatment.
