This specification covers a low-alloy steel in the form of welding wire.
This wire has been used typically as filler metal for gas-tungsten-arc and gas-metal-arc welding of critical weldments of low-alloy steels where the joint is capable of being heat treated to 180 ksi (1241 MPa) minimum tensile strength, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Wire shall be classified as follows:
Type 1 - Bare Wire
Type 2 - Copper Coated
Type 1 shall be supplied unless Type 2 is specified.
