Alleima® 8RE18 is an austenitic chromium-nickel steel for high-temperature applications.
At 20oC (68oF)

1) Rp0.2 0 corresponds to 0.2% offset yield strength.
2) Based on L0 = 5.65 √S0 where L0 is the original gauge length and S0 the original cross-section area.
The weldability of Alleima® 8RE18 is good. Welding must be carried out without preheating and subsequent heat treatment is normally not required. Suitable methods of fusion welding are manual metal-arc welding (MMA/SMAW) and gas-shielded arc welding, with the TIG/GTAW method as first choice.
For Alleima® 8RE18, heat input of <2.0 kJ/mm and interpass temperature of <150°C (300°F) are recommended.
TIG/GTAW or MIG/GMAW welding
