Grade 2 has very good weldability. Being substantially single phase material, the microstructure of the alpha phase is not affected greatly by thermal treatments or welding temperatures.Therefore, the mechanical properties of a correctly welded joint are equal to, or exceed those of the parent metal and show good ductility
Chemical composition (weight %) (Maximum values unless range is shown)
For corrosion resistant in the chemical and offshore industries, in aircraft construction where a certain strength level and ease of formability is desired. Also used in heat exchangers, hypochlorite systems, fire water systems, ballast water systems, risers, fittings, flanges, fasteners, forgings, pumps, valves.
