    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for aluminium and aluminium alloy electrodes for gas metal-arc welding. The classification system adopted is basically in line with ANSI/AWS A5.10 and, in general, electrodes which comply with that Standard will also be deemed to comply with this Standard.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for aluminium and aluminium alloy solid electrodes for gas metal arc welding.
