The general and galvanic corrosion behaviour of steel welds welded using E7018 welding electrode were studied in 3.5% Nacl solution and synthetic sea water. Weld metals corrodes higher than the parent metals ASTM A36 steel and API 2H steel. Post weld heat treatment at 873 K improves the corrosion resistance. Addition of copper and nickel to E7018 welding electrodes makes the weld metal more corrosion resistant. The galvanic corrosion measurements between the parent metals and the weld with and without the addition of copper and nickel were made and the results are discussed.
