WSG A 31
TIG welding rods for creep resisting steel

Classification DIN EN ISO

21952-A W Z4Mo, 636-B W 57A 4 W4M31

Material No.


Classification AWS

A5.28 ER80S-D2, A5.28 ER90S-D2



Characteristics and application

TIG/GTAW rod for welding of high strength steels, used predominantly after stress relieving. Predominantly used for welding high strength steels, providing a good combination of strength and toughness. May find use for joining creep resistance steels up to ~500°C but the WSG Mo wire would be the more usual choice.

Base materials

For a wide range of engineering steels with a yield strength up to 540MPa (78ksi) and UTS up to 620MPa (90ksi).
