WELDABILITY OF NEW HIGH STRENGTH LOW ALLOY CAST STEEL

A new cast low alloy steel, IN866, has been developed, and combines yield strengths in the range 70-100 ksi with good toughness in heavy sections. The steel can be welded in both the as-cast and heat treated condition with commercial welding electrodes. No preheat is required and the strength and toughness of the weldments meet all requirements. IN-866 can be readily cut using the oxyacetylene process and readily gouged by air-carbon arc. Ease and quality of cutting and gouging are comparable to those of mild steel. The steel can be hardfaced with a response comparable to that of mild steel.
