AWS A5.29 CLASS E 81T1-Ni2
81T1-Ni2 is a flux cored wire designed for single or multi pass using CO2 or Argon /CO2 shielding gas welding having a smooth spray-type transfer commonly used on low alloy steels. This all position wire normally used in applications which will produce a chemical composition of 2-2.5 % nickel yielding strengths ranging from 80-100 ksi. Steels commonly welded with this grade would include weathering steels (where color match is not required), shipbuilding, off shore platform rigging and similar grades such as ASTM A734.
E81T1-Ni2 is used extensively in the fabrication, erection, and repair of structural fabrication of higher strength. E81T1-Ni2 is noted for its smooth arc and minimum spatter. When used for horizontal fillet joints the weld bead has
