This Standard specifies requirements for manufacturers and users on the classification of wire electrodes, wires, rods and weld deposits. Covers the as-welded condition and the post-weld heat-treated (PWHT) condition for gas shielded metal arc welding and tungsten inert-gas welding of high strength steels with a minimum yield strength greater than 500 MPa, or a minimum tensile strength greater than 570 MPa. One wire electrode can be tested and classified with different shielding gases.
Also provides for classification utilizing a system based upon the yield strength and the average impact energy of 47 J of all-weld metal, or utilizing a system based upon the tensile strength and the average impact energy of 27 J of all-weld metal. Reproduced with national modifications from ISO 16834:2012.
