AWS Class E2553-16
ASME SFA 5.4
WT 2553-16 is considered a duplex alloy that deposits austenitic ferritic metal. It is mainly used for joining other duplex stainless steels as well as low alloy steels. When welding WT 2553-16 electrodes provide an increase tensile strength as well as an increase in pitting resistance and stress cracking resistance. It is often used in offshore industries and in piping for gas and oil.
Tensile Strength: 112,000 psi
Yield Strength: 90,000 psi
Available in multiple sizes and diameters in spool and wire rods.
