2205 with 316L?


Is it possible to weld 2205 and 316L together?

Hello Andrew!

Yes. In fact, take a look at publication 10044, "Practical guide to using duplex stainless steel", published by and available freely from the Nickel Development Institute (one of the many wonderful things about Canada!) at It notes that "the low-carbon version of AWS E309Mo-16 provides a good transition between type 316L and alloy 2205." Certainly there are things you must do correctly, and your process will have a strong effect on your success- EB or inertia welding should be a piece of cake- but it can be done.

Good luck!
