AWS Class ER 16-8-2
ASME SFA 5.9
WT 16-8-2 is a stainless steel that can be used to weld other stainless steels of similar composition for high pressure, high temperature piping systems. WT 16-8-2 provides a better freedom from weld cracking due to its good hot-ductility properties. This alloy has a low ferrite weld deposit. WT 16-8-2 is best used in the welding of steam piping, furnace parts, as well as in petrochemical, power generation, and chemical processing industries.
