Abstract: Creep properties of 9Cr heat resistant steels can be improved by the addition of boron and nitrogen to produce martensitic boron-nitrogen strengthened steels (MarBN). The joining of this material is a crucial consideration in the material design since welds can introduce relatively weak points in the structural material. In the present study, creep tests of a number of MarBN weld filler metals have been carried out to determine the effect of chemistry on the creep life of weld metal. The creep life of the weld metals was analysed, and the evolution of creep damage was investigated. Significant differences in the rupture life during creep have been observed as a function of boron, nitrogen and molybdenum concentrations in the weld consumable composition. Although the creep lives differed, the particle size and number in the failed creep tested specimens were similar, which indicates that there is a possible critical point for MarBN weld filler metal creep failure.
