> Advice need for welding 410 stainless

Hi all,

I am after some advice on tig welding a butt joint on some 8mm thick 410 stainless steel, the joint to be welded is 300 mm long.

I have done some research on the internet and have seen that it seems to be a challenging material to weld. One of my main concerns are the pre an post weld heat treatments required.

The job in question is a 1off and I don't have access to the equipment for heat treatment. So my question is can I still do it with the right consumables and oxy acetylene for pre heat etc?

Thanks in advance, Cream.

Preheat might be advantageous, depending on filler used. Most S/S are now low carbon which may make the need for post weld HT mute. 410 is generally thought to be one of the easiest Martensite S/S to weld. Some way of measuring temp for preheat would be good and if needed post weld heat treatment as well.

Depending on what the application is but the easiest weld is to use 309L and at 8mm thickness you dont need to preheat or PWHT

You casn also use matching if you really need to...stress corrosion / sulphurous atmosphere / strength
