WELDING A CAST SILICON HARDENED STAINLESS MARAGING STEEL

It is shown that IN-833, a new cast stainless maraging steel, can be welded by the GMAW and SMAW processes with a matching composition bare filler wire and a covered electrode consisting of a matching composition core wire plus a lime-titania flux. No preheating is required. Sound butt joints were made up to 1 in. (25 mm) thick with tensile properties and impact resistance equal to or better than the unwelded castings. Useful properties can be obtained on IN-833 weldments at strength levels from 120 to 145 ksi (827 to 1000 MPa) tensile strength by varying the aging temperature. The IN-833 weldments had rust resistance equivalent to CA-15.
