This type wire is classified by the chemical composition of deposited weld metal in combination with a specific welding flux using the submerged welding process. The weld metal properties are obtained by the use of a properly selected flux and EB9 wire and knowing if the weldment is to be heat treated or as welded condition.
|Deposited Chemical Composition % (Typical)|
|C = 0.09||P = 0.009||Cu = 0.11|
|Mn = 1.00||Cr = 8.75||V = 0.19|
|Si = 0.20||Ni = 0.75||Nb = 0.03|
|S = 0.009||Mo = 0.90||N = 0.04|
|Al = 0.01|

Recommended Welding Parameter
Weld parameter dependent upon the wire diameter and welding flux being used.
Note: Both agglomerated and fused fluxes can be used for submerged arc welding.
Note: The chemical composition of the flux mainly affects the chemistry of the weld metal and consequently its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties.
