The paper shows the favourable effect of nitrogen alloying of high-alloyed corrosion-resistant steels and weld metal on stabilization of the structure, prevention of grain boundary segregation in the HAZ and weld metal, and ensuring high corrosion resistance and technological strength of welded joints. 15 Ref., 2 Tabl., 10 Fig.
Keywords; arc welding, corrosion-resistant steels, nitrogen alloying, structure, corrosion resistance, technological strength, coated electrodes
