We are attempting a crack repair on a large F22 forging (several tons I estimate), where the joint restraint is extremely high. The first attempt with TIG & SMAW has failed, with at least one of the SMAW passes showing centreline cracking.
My question is this: is the B3L filler any less prone to cracking than B3?
