Application Guide

All-Position Stainless Steel Welding Stain-Plus™ Easy Down


Maintenance groups in most food and beverage plants face the challenge of welding stainless. While stainless is not a hard metal to weld, it does take a quality welding electrode to get the desired results. 

In many areas parts fabricated of stainless steel are used for corrosion protection. Light gauge materials leave little room for heat build-up in weld repairs without burning through the part. 

Stain-Plus Easy Down alloy was specially designed for just such applications. Virtually any welder can use this electrode and make quick, dependable and secure repairs with less chance of accidental material damage or loss.

Features & Benefits

  • Controlled penetration — softer arc minimizes weld spatter and virtually eliminates burn-through on thin metals

  • Time-saving— vertical down welding increases welding speed by 50%

  • Minimum distortion — less heat input reduces the risk of distortion on thin gauge stainless

  • Excellent arc stability even on AC

  • Superior all-position characteristics

  • Designed to weld most 200 and 300 series stainless steel
