    Rationale

    A815 requires weld metal to be identical to the base metal for fittings made to UNS S32750 and S32760. However, the equivalent welded pipe made to ASTM A928 requires an overmatched filler metal ER2594 as does ASME BPVC Section II-C SFA 5.9 Table 1. A815 will be updated to allow overmatched welds on S32750 and S32760 with ER2594
