NEW STANDARDS PROJECTS

Development work has begun on the following new or revised standards. Directly and materially affected individuals are invited to contribute to the development of such standards. Those wanting to participate may contact the Program Manager listed with the document.

Participation on AWS Technical Committees and Subcommittees is open to all persons.

J1.3/J1.3M:201X, Specification of Resistance Welding Electrode Materials
This specification establishes current material property values (e.g., hardness, electrical conductivity, and dimensional tolerance) within an American National Standard for common resistance welding electrode materials. An additional rationale is to describe common applications of these materials. The standard will also provide cross referencing to ISO 5182, Materials for resistance welding electrodes and ancillary equipment.

  • Stakeholders: Resistance welding material producers, users and distributors
  • New Standard
  • Staff Contact: E. Abrams, ext. 307

 

STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

AWS was approved as an accredited standards-preparing organization by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1979. AWS rules, as approved by ANSI, require that all standards be open to public review for comment during the approval process. This column also advises of ANSI approval of documents. The standards listed below are under public review. A draft copy may be obtained through the AWS staff contact for the respective standard. Send correspondence to AWS, Technical Services Division, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL 33166-6672; telephone (800/305) 443-9353.
