AWS Technical Committees
C3 Committee on Brazing and Soldering


CHAIR: Mr. Ronald Smith, S-Bond Technologies
SECRETARY: Stephen Borrero
SCOPE: Responsible for the advancement of brazing and soldering technology through the development of specifications for the many brazing and soldering processes and filler metals. It actively pursues the expansion of brazing and soldering education through its ongoing involvement with creating university-level courses, its voluminous brazing handbook, as well as its International Brazing and Soldering Conference held every three years.
