Specification and qualification of welding procedures for metallic materials - Welding procedure test - Part 2: Arc welding of aluminium and its alloys
Welding procedure test for arc welding of aluminium and its alloys.
This International Standard specifies how a preliminary welding procedure specification is qualified by welding procedure tests. It defines the conditions for the execution of welding procedure tests and the range of qualification for welding procedures for all practical welding operations within the range of variables.
This standard applies to the arc welding of wrought and cast aluminium and its alloys. In this standard the term aluminium stands for aluminium and for aluminium alloys.
This standard does not apply to finishing welding of aluminium castings.
The principles of this standard may be applied to other fusion welding processes.
