AWS A5.8M/A5.8:2019 prescribes the requirements for the classification of brazing filler metals for brazing and braze welding. The chemical composition, physical form, and packaging of more than 120 brazing filler metals are specified. The braz-ing filler metal groups described include aluminum, cobalt, copper, gold, magnesium, nickel, palladium, silver, titanium, and brazing filler metals for vacuum service. Information is provided concerning the liquidus, the solidus, the brazing temperature range, and general areas of application recommended for each brazing filler metal. Additional requirements are included for manufacture, sizes, lengths, and packaging. A guide is appended to the specification as a source of infor-mation concerning the classification system employed and the intended use of the brazing filler metals for brazing and braze welding.
