Steel grades
1.1 Chemical analysis
The following table shows the chemical analysis in percentage of TS890

3. Workpiece temperature during welding

Every time that structural and wear resistant steel are welded it is very important to minimize the risks of cold cracking ( also known as hydrogen cracking or delayed cracking) . The main cause of cold cracking is the presence of hydrogen together with the stress in the welded joint. The risk of cracking is minimized by: preheating the parent material before welding; guaranteeing that the joint surface are perfectly clean and dry; minimizing the shrinkage stresses, which could be reached by a good fit between the workpieces and a well planned sequences of weld runs (balanced welding); selecting a filler material with low hydrogen content. To calculate the heat input could be used this following formula:

1.2 Weldability (see point 3)

Weldability is a key factor for the tubes in structural and engineering applications. Tenaris guarantees the good weldability of the product thanks to its controlled chemical composition with low carbon equivalent.

Preheating is very important in tack welding and in welding of the root pass. The higher the temperature during and after welding, the easier it will be for the hydrogen to escape from the steel. The need for preheating increases with the plate thickness to compensate for the faster cooling of thick plate, and because thick plate has a higher CEV value than a thinner plate. If the ambient is rich of humidity and / or the temperature is below 5 C, it occurs to increase the temperatures standards and also the temperature should be increased if the workpiece welded is rigidly restrained.

The TS890 steel grade is weldable with traditional welding procedures, given observance of the generally accepted technical rules. It is very important to define a welding procedure which takes into account the following conditions: Thickness of the base material Specific heat input (specially for HAZ) Design requirements (for join preparation) Welding method used Weld material characteristics Special attention is taken towards cracks susceptibility, which is more likely to happen with high thickness and high resistance. This particularity is connected to the following factors: Chemical analysis (by means CEV) The amount of diffusible hydrogen in the weld material HAZ micro - structure Tensile stress concentrations at the weld joints Value of toughness in ZF and ZTA after welding process

The choice of filler material is in function with the demanded made on the mechanical properties of the welded joints in the different cases. Also it is important to choose a filler material which allows to keep an hydrogen content of 5 ml /100 g in the weld metal. The main benefits of choosing low-strength filler material rather than high-strength filler material (yield strength in excess of 500 N/mm2) are: Major toughness of the weld metal; Improved ductility of the welded joint; Reduce sensitivity to cracking. And finally for fillet welds, it is always recommendable to select under-matching filler material.

TS890 could be subjected to the following welding process: MMA (Manual Metal Arc) MAG (Gas Metal Arc) SAW (Submerged Arc) TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) It is important to establish the correct value of heat input to obtain a satisfactory combination of toughness, strength and preserve hardness of the heat affected zone (HAZ).
