For cryogenic applications, the chemical compositions in Sandvik's welding grades are optimized for Charpy-impact toughness and other characteristics which include:

  • Extremely low impurity levels to reduce the risk of hot-cracking
  • Controlled ferrite content for resistance to microfissuring
  • A balanced content of microelements for optimum arc stability and wetting characteristics
