Following are the steps as to the how an order is received from a customer at the HO:

Its not just supplying.
Its also customising

Most stainless steels are considered to have good weldability and may be welded by several welding processes including the arc welding processes, resistance welding, electron and laser beam welding, friction welding and brazing. For any of these processes, joint surfaces and any filler metal must be clean.

The coefficient of thermal expansion for the austenitic types is 50% greater than that of carbon steel and this must be considered to minimize distortion. The low thermal and electrical conductivity of austenitic stainless steel is generally helpful in welding. Less welding heat is required to make a weld because the heat is not conducted away from a joint as rapidly as in carbon steel. In resistance welding, lower current can be used because resistivity is higher.


  • Chromium - provides basic corrosion resistance.
  • Molybdenum - provides high temperature strength and increases corrosion resistance.
  • Niobium (Columbium), Titanium -strong carbide formers.


  • Nickel - provides high temperature strength and ductility.
  • Carbon - carbide former, strengthener.
  • Nitrogen - increases strength, reduces toughness.


  • Regarding Austenite & Ferrite Manganese - sulfide former Silicon - wetting agent
  • Sulfur and Selenium - improve machinability, cause hot cracking in welds.


  • Duplex Ferritic - Austenitic stainless steels

Duplex stainless steels solidify as 100% ferrite, but about half of the ferrite transforms to austenite during cooling through temperatures above approx. 1900°F (1040°C). This behavior is accomplished by increasing Cr and decreasing Ni as compared to austenitic grades. Nitrogen is deliberately added to speed up the rate of austenite formation during cooling. Duplex stainless steels are ferromagnetic. They combine higher strength than austenitic stainless steels with fabrication properties similar to austenitics, and with resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking of ferritic stainless steels.


The MIG wires are supplied in bright as well as in matte finish and the wire is specially cleaned to avoid weld contamination. Stainless steel MIG wires can be supplied in plastic spool. The wires have suitable cast / helix to ensure perfect "Pay-Off".


We manufacture high quality stainless steel TIG wires in 36" & 1,000 mm cutlengths, with embossing on both sides above 1.0 mm wires as per customer’s requirements. TIG wires are supplied in bright and clean finish to avoid all possible contamination. No oil is used in processing of TIG wires.


We manufacture clean & layer wound wire for submerged arc welding from 1.60 mm (0.062") to 5.00 mm (0.187") in various grades in bright as well as in matte finish. The wires tensile strength, helix and cast diameter is engineered to precise tolerance to ensure perfect "Pay-Off".


We manufacture high quality stainless steel wire for welding electrodes in sizes 2.00 mm (0.078") - 5.00 mm (0.187") in bright as well as in matte finish.

The stainless steel wire for welding electrodes are supplied in coil as well as in cut length as per AWS, DIN, BS, JIS and other equivalent international standards or as per the customer’s requirement.

The commonly manufactured grades are AWS ER307, ER308, ER308L, ER309, ER309L, ER309LMo, ER310, ER312, ER316, ER316L, ER317L, ER318, ER347, ER430 with low and normal silicon contents.

Hoganas sponge iron powders for welding applications

The Hoganas sponge grades for welding applications are renowned for their high and uniform quality. Our wide range of powders with varying chemical and physical properties, all with low levels of impurities and narrow specifications, helps enhancing the characteristics and performance of covered electrodes as well as flux-cored and metal-cored wires.


It is a well-known fact that additions of iron powder to covered electrode coatings contribute to improved welding characteristics. The results are often a smoother and more stable arc, lower spatter losses, improved re-striking as well as good bead appearance and easy slag removal. With the Hoganas sponge powders, these advantages are often more notable.


Additions of high-purity iron powders in welding electrodes have a positive effect on final weld quality. This is particularly important for electrodes used for critical applications and where the demands on mechanical properties are high.


Additions of iron powder to covered electrode coatings increase the metal recovery. Moreover, by diluting the electrode coating with iron powder, the heat generated during welding will be more efficiently utilised. Iron powder additions also allow covered electrodes to operate at higher amperages without overheating. All in all, this results in improved efficiency and higher deposition rates.



  • Wide range of iron powders developed for welding applications
  • Narrow specifications
  • Consistent chemical and physical properties
  • Low level of impurities
  • Efficient logistics solutions and smart packaging
Hoganas iron powders for cutting applications

This Method of flame processing of high alloy and refractory material involves the injection of iron powder into an oxy-acetylene.

Oxy-acetylene cutting is based on the following two facts:-

  • The high temperature of flame which melts heat resistant materials
  • Iron and steel when heated to red heat in oxygen, react to liberate more heat.

The oxy-acetylene flame oxidises a part of the material to be cut. The flame melts the iron oxide and the slag blows away exposing a new surface. The slag also takes away some of the iron which has melted without being oxidised.

This conventional method is not effective for S.S., Manganese Steel, C.I. and non ferrous metals as they resist the high temperature of the flame. As a consequence, the slag does not melt, remaining behind as a barrier for further flame action.

Adding iron powder to the oxy-acetylene flame has a two-fold effect:-

  • Combustion with oxygen increases the temperature.
  • The iron oxide formed due to the iron powder helps in blowing away the slag and exposing a fresh surface.
  • No Carbon pick-up in the cutting area as in case of electrode cutting carbon pick-up takes place.

This method has been proved to be more effective and economical to the conventional methods of plasma spraying or electrode cutting.

It also requires a slight modification of the cutting torch to inject iron powder and in some cases the use of a dispenser to feed the powder alongwith compressed air.
