Paper deals with quality and properties of deposit layer made by method electroslag cladding with strip electrode. Parent material was not-alloyed structure steel S355J2. Filler metal was stainless austenitic steel – strip electrode OK Band 309Nb, with agglomerated flux OK Flux 10.10. Samples were made with 1 to 3-layers pass. Samples were examined in terms of chemical composition and dilution of parent metal and filler metal. Next, changes of structure, courses of hardness and heat affection of parent metal were mapped. Comparison of characteristics of particular layer, comparisons between results electroslag cladding and submerged arc cladding was the aim.Keywords: Electroslag Cladding, Strip Electrode, Microstructure, Hardness
