MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES
Fabrication of Isotope-Traced Filler Metal Wires
For exploring the structure and alloying in heterogeneous welds, 63Ni-
tagged, 1/16-in.-diam wire was prepared in type 347 stainless steel, type
308 stainless steel, and Inconel 82 filler metals. Also procedures were
developed for preparing 1/16- and 5/32-in.-diam wires of type 347 stainless
steel filler metal tagged with 14C. These wires contained low and high
concentrations of carbon, sulfur, and phosphorus for studying the effects
of segregates on weld properties. Work in this area is now progressing.
Isotope 63Ni was obtained locally as an aqueous 1 M HC1 solution with
a specific activity exceeding 5-C!/g Ni and a radiochemical purity exceeding.
95%, with about 0.1% "5Ni.
