Alloy 61 is used for the welding of Nickel 200 and 201. The reaction of titanium with carbon maintains a low level of free carbon and enables the filler metal to be used with Nickel 201. The weld metal of Alloy 61 has good corrosion resistance, particularly in alkalis. Dissimilar-welding applications for Alloy 61 include joining Nickel 200 and 201 to stainless steels, carbon steels, Inconel® alloys, Incoloy® alloys, copper-nickel alloys, and Monel® alloys. This filler metal is also used for joining Monel® alloys and copper-nickel alloys to carbon steels, and for joining copper-nickel alloys to Inconel® and Incoloy® alloys.
