Welding Consumables - Wire Electrodes, Wires and Rods for Welding of Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloys - Classification
Additional Comments: SAME AS ISO 18273
Published By:American Welding Society, Inc. (AWS)
This standard specifies requirements for classification of solid wires and rods for fusion welding of aluminum and aluminum alloys. The classification of the solid wires and rods is based on their chemical composition.
Safety and health issues and concerns are beyond the scope of this standard and are therefore not fully addressed herein. Some safety and health information can be found in informative annex Clauses A6 and A12. Safety and health information is available from other sources, including, but not limited to, ANSI Z49.1, Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes, and applicable federal and state regulations.
This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). The measurements are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other without combining in any way when referring to weld metal properties. The specification A5.10 uses U.S. Customary Units. The specification with the designation A5.10M uses SI Units. The latter are shown within brackets ([ ]) or in appropriate columns in tables and figures. Standard dimensions based on either system may be used for the sizing of electrodes or packaging or both under specification A5.10 or A5.10M.
