Alloy 59 is a nickel-chromium- molybdenum alloy with an extra low carbon and silicon content. This wire has excellent corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength. This alloy is used to weld low-carbon-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys, for welding the clad side of joints in steel clad with low-carbon-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys and for welding low carbon-nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys steel and to other nickel base alloys, such as alloys C-276, 22, 625 and other high alloys such as 6Mo stainless, 825 and even common grades of stainless steels. Some typical base metals that this alloy is used on are ASTM and ASME B and SB 574, 575, 619, 622 and 626.
