This standard identifies various information necessary for communication between a purchaser and a supplier of welding consumables. This standard, together with an AWS, ISO, or other recognized welding consumable standard, provides a method for preparing those specific details needed for welding consumable procurement which consist of the following: a) the welding consumable classification (selected from the pertinent AWS, ISO, or other applicable welding consumable standard); b) the lot class (selected from Clause 4 of this standard); c) the testing schedule (selected from Clause 5 of this standard).

This document provides a means by which the information needed for the procurement of welding consumables to a filler metal specification can be stated clearly, concisely, and completely. It includes a method by which the heat, lot, testing, and certification requirements that are essential to so many of today's welding applications can be specified in the procurement document. This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). Since these are not equivalent, each system must be used independently of the other.View Less
