Specification for Carbon and Low-Alloy Steel Flux Cored Electrodes for Flux Cored Arc Welding and Metal Cored Electrodes for Gas Metal Arc Welding
standard by American Welding Society, 12/20/2011
This specification prescribes the requirements for classification of carbon and low-alloy steel flux cored electrodes forflux cored arc welding and metal cored electrodes for gas metal arc welding. The requirements include chemical compositionand mechanical properties of the weld metal and certain usability characteristics. Optional, supplemental designatorsare also included for diffusible hydrogen and to indicate conformance to special mechanical property requirementswhen the weld metal is deposited using low heat input, fast cooling rate and high heat input, slow cooling rate procedures.Additional requirements are included or referenced for standard sizes, marking, manufacturing, and packaging. Aguide is appended to the specification as a source of information concerning the classification system employed and theintended use of carbon and low-alloy steel flux cored and metal cored electrodes.
This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). Since these arenot equivalent, each system must be used independently of the other.
