This filler metal is the most popular grade among stainless steels, used for general-purpose applications where corrosion conditions are moderate. Can also be certified as ER308H.

GEN 308

308 except the carbon content has been held to a maximum of .03% to reduce the possibility of intergranular carbide precipitation. Ideal for welding Types 304L, 321, and 347 stainless steels. This is a suitable wire for applications at cryogenic temperatures.

GEN 308L

GEN 308LSi is a stainless steel welding wire for MIG welding. This wire is used to weld equipment made with 304 and 308 stainless grades. Welding speed is higher than 308 or 308L due to improved wettability of weld metal.

GEN 430

GEN 430NLb is stabilized ferritic steel, which offers superior mechanical properties to 430 grade. In addition, its fatigue resistance is also higher, the fact that lead to its spontaneous popularity in the automotive industry. This product is also used for overlay cladding as well as in thermal spray applications. Preheating of the joint to a minimum of 300°F is recommended. Welding must be done with very low heat input.

GEN 430LNb

The welds are characterized by high tensile strength and improved resistance to stress corrosion cracking and pitting. The wire is lower in ferrite compared to that of base metal in order to obtain improved weldability.

GEN 2209

GEN 2594 provides matching chemistry and mechanical property characteristics to wrought superduplex alloys such as 2507 and Zeron 100, as well as to superduplex casting alloys (ASTM A890). The welding wire is overalloyed 2-3 percent in Nickel to provide the optimum ferrite/austenite ratio in the finished weld.

GEN 418 is used for TIG or MIG welding of nickel-copper alloys (ASTM B127, B163, B164, and B165 UNS Number N04400). This filler metal can be used for MIG overlay on steel after a first layer with nickel 208 (Filler Metal 61). Dissimilar welding applications include joining nickel-copper alloys to Nickel 200 copper-nickel alloys.

GEN 418 – ERNiCu-7

GEN 606 is used for TIG, MIG and SAW welding of base metals such as ASTM B163, B166, B167 and B168 – alloys which have UNS Number N06600. It is one of the most used nickel alloys whose applications range from cryogenic to high temperatures. This filler metal can also be used for dissimilar welding applications between various nickel alloys and stainless or carbon steels, as well as for overlaying.

GEN 606 – ERNiCr-3

GEN 617 is used for TIG, MIG, and SAW welding of nickel-chrome-cobalt-molybdenum alloys as well as between themselves and dissimilar metals, such as stainless, carbon or low alloy steels. This filler wire also can be used to overlay welding where similar chemical composition is desired. The weld metal provides optimum strength and oxidation resistance from 1500°F (815°C) up to 2100°F (1150°C).

GEN 617 – ERNiCrCoMo-1

GEN 622 is an alloy of nickel with chromium, molybdenum, and tungsten as principal alloying elements. It is used to weld alloys of similar composition as well as dissimilar joints between nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys and stainless or carbon or low alloy steels.

It can also be used for cladding overlay as well as spraying applications. GEN 622 offers excellent corrosion resistance in oxidizing as well as reducing media in a wide variety of chemical process environments. It offers an outstanding resistance to stress corrosion cracking.

GEN 622 – ERNiCrMo-10

GEN 625 is used for TIG, MIG, and SAW welding of nickel-chrome-molybdenum alloys. This filler metal is very versatile in its applications. It can be used for welding of dissimilar joints between nickel-chrome-molybdenum alloys and stainless or carbon or low alloy steels. It can also be used for cladding as well as for spraying applications. GEN 625 with low iron (less than 0.8%) is preferred in various applications where dilution of iron must be controlled to the minimum.

The high alloy content of GEN 625 enables it to withstand highly corrosive environments. The combination of nickel and chromium provides the resistance to oxidizing conditions and the combination of nickel and molybdenum provides resistance to reducing conditions. Due to its molybdenum content, this alloy offers resistance to stress corrosion cracking, pitting, and crevice corrosion.

GEN 625HWT is engineered to work with the standard Gas Tungsten Arc process with an AC power source to preheat the welding wire before introduction to the GTA heat source. This enables automated systems with continuous wire feed to achieve a high quality, high deposition rate overlay.

GEN 625/625HWT – ERNiCrMo-3

GEN 718 is used for TIG welding alloys 718, 706, and X-750. It is mainly used for welding high-strength aircraft components, and liquid rocket components involving cryogenic temperatures. This alloy can be age hardened to higher strengths.

GEN 718 – ERNiFeCr-2

GEN 825 is used for TIG, MIG, and SAW welding of nickel-iron-chromium-molybdenum-copper alloys. This can also be used to overlay cladding where similar chemical composition is required.

GEN 825 – ERNiFeCr-1

Copper Gen4 Welding

Deoxidized Copper is a filler metal containing 98% copper and small amounts of phosphorus and silicon. The C189 alloy is easy flowing and produces weld deposits that are porosity free, electrically conductive, and copper-color matched. C189 is used to repair weld copper castings, to weld galvanized steel and deoxidized copper to mild steel where high strength joints are not required. (Specification AWS A5.7 / ASME SFA 5.7 Class ERCu)

Silicon Bronze (may also be known as Everdur) is a copper-based filler metal containing about 3% silicon and may have small percentages of manganese, tin, and zinc. C656 is typically used for gas-tungsten arc welding and gas-metal arc welding of copper, brass, bronze, steel, galvanized steels and also cast iron. It is also used for surfacing areas that are subjected to corrosion. (Specification AWS S5.7 / ASME SFA 5.7 Class ERCuSi-A) Silicon Bronze (C656) – ERCuSi-A
