ISO/TR 14745:2015 provides recommendations for post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) of steels with recommendations for holding temperatures and holding times for different materials and material thicknesses. These recommendations are limited to stress relieving for non-alloy steels (groups 1, 2, 3, 4, and 11) and to tempering for Cr-Mo-(Ni) steels (groups 5 and 6) and martensitic stainless steels (group 7.2), and are independent of type of product or location. The recommendations do not supersede any guidance given in material supplier specifications, e. g. thermo-mechanically treated fine-grain steels. It does not specify when PWHT is required. Such requirements are given in product standards, material specifications, or material data sheets.
