Strength and ductility of fusion zone of metastable β titanium alloy welds can be improved by choosing suitable fillers. This paper reports the effects of using CP-Ti filler on the microstructural and mechanical properties of Ti-15-3 weldments. Full penetration autogenous and CP-Ti filler welds were produced by pulsed gas tungsten arc welding. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed small amounts of α-Ti phase in the diffraction pattern obtained for welds prepared using CP-Ti filler. Transmission electron microscopy analysis showed presence of grain boundary and intragranular α in the fusion zone of the welds prepared using CP-Ti filler. The welds prepared with CP-Ti filler showed higher hardness, higher UTS and lower % strain compared to autogenous welds. © 2017, The Indian Institute of Metals - IIM.
