1. For general purpose only. For specialised applications, e.g. pressure vessels anodised-item etc., special process should be used. 2. * Joining ratings A, B, C & D are relative in order or merit. A - Readily weldable. B - Special techniques and close control of procedure are required. C - Limited weldability due to crack sensitivity, loss in strenght and or loss in resistance to corrosion. D - Not recommended. 3 + Filler metals for general purpose only. For specialised applications requiring high strength ductility,- colour match after anodising etc., speical filler metals are recommended. |
