K2 = Wratten 8
No, you cannot copy the spectral density of the Wratten 8 by using yellow Color Compensating filters.
However, stacking two CC50Y should get you close.
The K2/Wratten 8 contrast filter is a cut-off filter that cuts-off blue and transmits green and red.
The CCY compensating filters are band-pass filters that transmit a band in the yellow region, but still let through some blue.
However the relative sensitivity in that region varies for different films, so that you likely will get similar results.
