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.

D3.9/D3.9M:201X, Guide for Aluminum Hull Welding
This guide provides information on proven processes, techniques, and procedures for welding aluminum hulls and related ship structures. The information presented applies chiefly to the welding of aluminum hulls that are over 30 ft. (9 m) in length and made of sheet and plate 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) thick and greater. Thin-gage aluminum welding usually requires specific procedures in the area of fixturing, welding sequence, and other techniques for distortion control that are not necessarily applicable to thick plates. Similarly, the choice of welding process or applicable process conditions, or both, also differs according to thickness.

D3.9/D3.9M:201X, Specification for the Classification of Weld-Through Paint Primers
This standard specifies the requirements for classification of weld-through paint primers only. The paint primers are classified based on the maximum coating thickness for successful welding and the welding procedure used during the classification test. This Standard provides a system for paint manufacturers to classify the weldability features of weld-through primers. This Standard is limited to weld-through paint primers only and does not include galvanized or other types of protective coatings.

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; telephone (800/305) 443-9353.
