About This Item


Full Description

welding, flux cored stainless steel rods for root pass welding with the gas tungsten arc process, and metal cored stainless steel electrodes for gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, plasma arc welding, submerged arc welding, and any other process to which they may be applied.

The chromium content of undiluted weld metal from these electrodes and rods is not less than 10.5% nominal and the iron content exceeds that of any other element. For purposes of classification, the iron content shall be derived as the balance element when all other elements are considered to be set at their specified minimum values.

Safety and health issues are beyond the scope of this standard and, therefore, are not fully addressed herein. Some safety and health information can be found in Annex Clauses A5 and A10. Safety and health information is available from other sources, including, but not limited to, ANSI Z49.1, Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes, and applicable state and federal regulations.

This specification uses 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 material properties. The specification with the designation A5.22 uses U.S. Customary Units. The specification A5.22M uses SI Units. The latter are shown within brackets ([ ]) or in appropriate columns in tables. Standard dimensions based on either system may be used for sizing of filler metals or packaging or both under A5.22 or A5.22M specifications.
