AWS Welding Handbook
Eighth Edition, Volume 4
Materials and Applications, Part 2


Expanded edition with more than 70 pages of new content. The eighth edition revises previous editions with new and expanded information on coated steels, stainless steels, tool and die steels, and titanium . . . and much more!

Expanded with great new information – we’ve added more than 70 pages on new content on coated steels alone! You’ll also find extensive revision to chapters covering stainless steels, tool and die steels, and titanium. Covers carbon and low-alloy steels; high-alloy steels; coated steels; tool and die steels; stainless and heat-resisting steels; clad and dissimilar metals; surfacing; cast irons; titanium and titanium alloys; and reactive, refractory, and precious metals and alloys. (ISBN 0-87171-549-X)

  • Ten chapters supplement the ten chapters contained in Volume Three.
  • Includes an overview of ferrite, its effects, and its measurement in the chapter on stainless steels.
  • Presents previously proprietary information in the chapter on tool and die steels.
  • Titanium chapter includes a greatly expanded treatment of welding metallurgy.
