CSA W48-14 - Filler Metals and Allied Materials for Metal Arc Welding


This Standard specifies requirements for the classification and certification of

  1. carbon steel covered electrodes for shielded metal arc welding (SMAW);
  2. chromium and chromium-nickel steel covered electrodes for SMAW, including electrodes designated for welding heat-resistant steels containing more than 11% chromium and less than 50% nickel;
  3. low alloy steel covered electrodes for SMAW;
  4. wire electrodes and deposits for gas-shielded metal arc welding (GMAW) of non-alloy and fine-grained steels, as specified in Clause 1.2;
  5. carbon steel electrodes for flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) and metal-cored arc welding (MCAW);
  6. fluxes and solid carbon steel electrodes for submerged
