Welding consumables - Solid wire electrodes, tubular cored electrodes and electrode/flux combinations for submerged arc welding of non alloy and fine grain steels - Classification (ISO 14171:2016); German version EN ISO 14171:2016
Schweißzusätze - Massivdrahtelektroden, Fülldrahtelektroden und Draht-Pulver-Kombinationen zum Unterpulverschweißen von unlegierten Stählen und Feinkornstählen - Einteilung (ISO 14171:2016); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 14171:2016
This International Standard recognizes that there are two somewhat different approaches in the global market to classifying a given electrode/flux combination, and allows for either or both to be used, to suit a particular market need. Application of either type of classification designation (or of both where suitable) identifies a product as classified in accordance with this International Standard. This standard specifies the requirements for the classification of electrode/flux combinations and weld metal in the as-welded condition and in the post-weld heat-treated condition for submerged arc welding of non-alloy and fine grain steels with minimum yield strength of up to 500 MPa or a minimum tensile strength of up to 570 MPa. One flux can be classified with different solid wire electrodes and tubular cored electrodes. The solid wire electrode is also classified separately based on chemical composition. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 092-00-03 AA "Schweißzusätze (DVS AG W 5)" ("Welding consumables (DVS AG W5)") at DIN Standards Committee Welding and allied processes (NAS).
