Tech Data
Choice of the proper filler metal is most important. The molten alloy in the weld puddle is an intermixture of the filler metal and the base alloy. In this dilution, the welding alloy should provide the strength, ductility, resistance to cracking and corrosion resistance to achieve the necessary results.
