308L (including ER308LSi) is predominately used on austenitic stainless steels, such as types 301, 302, 304, 305 and cast alloys CF-8 and CF-3. For high temperature applications such as in the electrical power industry, the high carbon 308H electrode provides better creep resistance than does 308L.

316L (including ER316LSi) filler metal should be used with 316L and 316 base metals. CF-8M and CF-3M are the cast equivalents of 316 and 316L, respectively.

Use 309L (including ER309LSi) when joining mild steel or low alloy steel to stainless steels, for joining dissimilar stainless steels such as 409 to itself or to 304L stainless, as well as for joining 309 base metal. CG-12 is the cast equivalent of 309. Some 308L applications may be substituted with 309L filler metal, but 316L or 316 applications generally require molybdenum and 309L contains no molybdenum.

Type 347 stainless steel filler metal is ideal for 347 and 321 base materials because it matches these stabilized grades. CF-8C is the cast equivalent of 347. Type 347 filler metal is also suitable most 308L filler metal applications.

The electrodes that are used in carbon arc welding consisted of baked carbon or pure graphite which was placed inside a copper jacket. During the welding process, the electrode is not consumed as the weld progresses; overtime, however, the electrodes will need to be replaced due to erosion.

Carbon arc welding is one of the oldest welding techniques that are still in use today.  The process of carbon arc welding uses low voltage, high amp electricity to heat the metal once an arc is formed between a carbon electrode and the piece being welded; if an arc is formed between two carbon electrodes that technique is known as a twin-carbon arc.  Because of advancements in the welding field, the technique of carbon arc welding is hardly used, especially among welders who are just learning to weld.  However, may older welders who know the technique still use it from time to time.

The technique of single-carbon arc welding uses a direct current power supply which is connected using a straight polarity.  This technique was a favorite when welders needed to work with galvanized sheet metal because the heat created when welding could be concentrated on one general area and lessen the amount of distortion that the metal experienced.  The process of carbon arc welding requires the welder to use hand pieces that were designed specifically for use with this technique.  The hand pieces must be able to handle the higher temperatures produced by the electrodes, and the hand pieces used in an industrial setting are water-cooled to help protect the welder from the significant heat that is produced in this process.
