|ICS Code (Welding, brazing and soldering in general):||25.160.01|
1.1 Scope. This guide presents a description of wrought nickel-based alloys and the processes and procedures that can be used to join these materials. It stresses the process basics, parameters, applications, and safety considerations. Practical information has been included in the form of figures, tables, and graphs that should prove useful in determining capabilities and limitations in the joining of these materials. 1.2 Units of Measure. This standard makes use of both the International System of Units (SI) and U.S. Customary Units. The latter are shown with brackets ([ ]) or in appropriate columns in tables and figures. The measurements may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system should be used independently. 1.3 Safety. Safety and health issues and concerns are beyond the scope of this standard; some safety and health information is provided, but such issues are not fully addressed here. Safety and health information is available from the following sources: American Welding Society: (1) ANSI Z49.1, Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes (2) AWS Safety and Health Fact Sheets (3) Other safety and health information on the AWS website Material or Equipment Manufacturers: (1) Material Safety Data Sheets supplied by materials manufacturers (2) Operating Manuals supplied by equipment manufacturers Applicable Regulatory Agencies Work performed in accordance with this standard may involve the use of materials that have been deemed hazardous, and may involve operations or equipment that may cause injury or death. This standard does not purport to address all safety and health risks that may be encountered. The user of this standard should establish an appropriate safety program to address such risks as well as to meet applicable regulatory requirements. ANSI Z49.1 should be considered when developing the safety program.
This document describes the welding of different wrought nickel-based alloys, including solid solution and precipitation hardening alloys.
