Filler Metal

-The base material and filler metal cross-reference guide suggestions are based on joining of the same material to itself.  When joining different material specifications, grades, classes, and/or types together, engineering and fabrication judgment must be used in the application(s).

-To provide a single comprehensive source for this type of information, the American Welding Society publishes the Filler Metal Comparison Charts. These charts constitute a cross-reference between the AWS filler metal classifications and the brand name designations used by the suppliers. While the individual charts are extensive, it is recognized that they are not all-inclusive. There are filler metals available that may conform to AWS specifications, but the manufacturers chose not to supply the required information.

Selecting Filler Metals matching strength Criteria

1999

This column is the first of a series that will address topics related to filler metal selection. The focus will be on the concerns of design engineers, beginning with filler metal strength. The strength of weld metal vs. base metals may be defined as matching, overmatching or undermatching. This column will address “matching” filler metal.
