Title: RE: Welding Steels of Different Specifications

I suggest you check directly with Scott Funderburk, Duane Miller or Omer Blodgett at Lincoln Electric. They can advise you very well about filler metal selection for mixed grades of steel. They are at phone number 216/481-8100.

Subject: Welding Steels of Different Specifications


I am designing a weldment that will consist of 3 different steels: ASTM's
A36, A572 grade 50, and A607 grade 50.  I need to develop no more strength in
the weld than is required to develop the A36 steel.  The A572 material is to
be welded to the A36 and to the A607.  As I read Section 3.3 (Base Metal
Combinations) and Table 3.1 of AWS D1.1:1998, E7015, E7016 or E7018 (low
hydrogen electrodes) may be used as filler metal, using SMAW.  This is based
on my reading that weld filler metal that is compatible with the lower
strength base metal in the assembly may be used provided the base metal is
listed in Table 3.1 and low hydrogen electrodes are used.

Is this correct?

Why would I want to do such a thing?  Well, its not the strangest thing I've
had to do in my work on old buildings.
