Welding consumables -- Solid wire electrodes, tubular cored electrodes and electrode-flux combinations for submerged arc welding of creep-resisting steels -- Classification
This standard has been revised by ISO 24598:2019
ISO 24598:2012 specifies requirements for classification of solid wire electrodes, tubular cored electrodes and electrode/flux combinations (all-weld metal deposits) for submerged arc welding of creep resisting and low-alloy elevated-temperature steels. One electrode can be tested and classified with different fluxes. The solid wire electrode is also classified separately based on its chemical composition.
ISO 24598:2012 is a combined specification providing for classification utilizing a system based upon the chemical composition of the solid wire electrode and all-weld metal deposit, or utilizing a system based upon the tensile strength of the all-weld metal deposit and the chemical composition of the solid wire electrode and all-weld metal deposit obtained with the electrode/flux combination.
