scope:

1.1 This specification prescribes requirements for the classification of carbon and low-alloy steel flux cored electrodes for flux cored arc welding (FCAW), either with or without shielding gas, and carbon and low-alloy steel metal cored electrodes for gas metal arc welding (GMAW). Carbon and low-alloy flux cored electrodes had previously been classified solely under AWS A5.20/A5.20M, Specification for Carbon Steel Electrodes for Flux Cored Arc Welding, or AWS A5.29/A5.29M, Specification for Low-Alloy Steel Electrodes for Flux Cored Arc Welding. Carbon and low-alloy steel metal cored electrodes have previously been classified solely under AWS A5.18/A5.18M, Specification for Carbon Steel Electrodes and Rods for Gas Shielded Arc Welding, or AWS A5.28/A5.28M, Specification for Low-Alloy Steel Electrodes and Rods for Gas Shielded Arc Welding. Iron is the only element of the undiluted weld metal deposited by the electrodes classified under this specification whose content exceeds 10.5%. 1.2 Safety issues and concerns are addressed in this standard, although health issues and concerns are beyond the scope of this standard. Some safety and health information can be found in non-mandatory Annex Clauses B5 and B13. Safety and health information is available from other sources, including, but not limited to, ANSI Z49.1,1 Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes, and applicable federal and state regulations. 1.3 This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). The measurements are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other without combining in any way when referring to weld metal properties. The specification with the designation A5.36 uses U.S. Customary Units. The specification A5.36M uses the International System of Units (SI). The latter are shown within brackets [ ] or in appropriate columns in tables and figures. Standard dimensions based on either system may be used for the sizing of electrodes or packaging or both under the A5.36 and A5.36M specifications.
