    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for covered stainless steel electrodes for manual metal arc welding. Covers electrodes in which chromium content exceeds 10.5 percent and nickel content does not exceed 50 percent. The Standard is based on ANSI/AWS A5.4, Specification for covered corrosion-resisting chromium and chromium-nickel steel welding electrodes.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for covered corrosion-resisting chromium and chromium-nickel steel electrodes for manual metal arc welding. It covers electrodes in which chromium content exceeds 10.5% and nickel content does not exceed 50%.NOTE: A guide to the classification of electrodes is given in Appendix A.
