Scope This specification prescribes requirements for the classification of covered stainless steel electrodes for shielded metal are welding! Chromium content of weld metal deposited by these electrodes is not less than 10.5 percent and the iron content exceeds that of any other element, For purposes of classification, the iron content shall be derived as the balance clement when all other elements are considered. to be at their minimum specified values? Note: Noattempt has been made to clasify all grades offiller metals within the limits of the above scope: only the more commonly used have been included. Part A General Requirements 2. Classification 2.1 The welding electrodes covered by this specification are classified according to the following: 1. Dueto possible differences in composition, core wire from a covered electrode should not be used as bare filler meta. 2. This revision includes casiications for F502-XX, F505- XX and EVCE-XX welding electrodes, These classifications also willbe included in the next revision of ANSI/ AWS AS.5,, ‘Specification for Low Alloy Steel Electrodes for Shielded Metal Are Welding. They wil be deleted in the is revision of ‘this document following publication ofthe pending evsion of the AS.S specification, Copy by the Ameian ellng Society he Thu Hy 05 12:1839 1998 (1) Chemical composition of undiluted weld metal adie 1) (Q) Current and position of welding (Table 2) 2.2 Materials classified under one classification may be classified under any other classification of this speci= fication provided they meet all the requirements for those classifications, except that a material may not be classified under more than one of the following EXXX-15, EXXX-16, EXXX-17, EXXX-25, of EXXX- 26 designations. Note: The test requirements of his specification establish minimum quality levels which will assure suit- ability of the electrodes for the usual applications. The ‘guide appended to this specification describes the more common applications and suggests testing procedures ‘for those applications which warrant tests that are beyond those included in this specification 3. Acceptance Acceptance! of the material shall be in accordance with the provisions of ANSI) AWS A501, Filer Metal Procurement Guidelines 3, See A3.

The SI units are given as equivalent values to the U.S. customary units. The standard sizes and dimensions in the wo systems are not identical, and for this reason, conversion from a st dard size or dimension in one system will not always ‘coincide with a standard size or dimension inthe other.

Retest [any test fails to meet its requirements, that test must be repeated twice. The results of both retests shall meet the requirement. Specimens for retest may be taken from the original test assembly or sample or from anew test assembly or sample, For chemical analysis, retest need be only for those specific elements that failed to meet their requirement. 8. Weld Test Assemblies 8.1 Three weld test assemblies are required: (1) The weld pad in Figure | for chemical analysis of the undiluted weld metal (2) The groove weld in Figure 2 for mechanical properties G) The filet weld in Fi electrode Optionally, the sample for chemical analysis may be taken from the reduced section of the fractured tension specimen or from a corresponding location (or any loca- tion above it) in the weld metal of the groove weld in Figure 2or from the weld pad used for ferrite determina tion, In the case of dispute, the weld pad of Figure I shall, be the referee method, re 3 for usability of the 6.
