    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Lays down requirements for solid electrode wires and for fluxes for the submerged arc welding or carbon steel and medium-tensile steel with sulfur and phosphorus contents of not greater than 0.06 % each. Covers size of wire, tolerance on diameter of wire, composition of wire, flux, testing and grading, quality control, packing and storage and marking.
