This wire has been used typically as filler metal for gas-tungsten-arc or gas-metal-arc welding of steels of similar composition requiring joints with strength and corrosion resistance comparable to those of the base metal, but usage is not limited to such application.
These products have been used typically for parts requiring corrosion resistance approximating that of steels of the 18-8 types and high strength exceeding that of the 12 Cr martensitic types up to 700 °F (370 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications.
This steel can be used in the solution heat treated condition and is capable of being precipitation heat treated to tensile strengths as high as 180,000 psi (1240 MPa).
Although this steel is relatively immune to stress-corrosion cracking, reference should be made to ARP 1110 for recommended practices to minimize such conditions.
These products have been used typically for carburized parts requiring high minimum case hardness and corrosion resistance equivalent to AISI Type 440C, but usage is not limited to such applications. These products are suitable for service up to 675 °F (357 °C).
This filler metal has been used typically for joining nonferrous alloys and corrosion and heat resistant steels and alloys where low flow point and corrosion and oxidation resistant joints with good strength at elevated temperatures are required, but usage is not limited to such applications. Also may be used as a corrosion and oxidation resistant hard coating.
