AWS D9.1 Sheet Steel Welding Code Now Available

AWS D9.1/D9.1M:2018, Sheet Steel Welding Code is now available on the American Welding Society’s online bookstore.

This code covers the arc and braze welding requirements for nonstructural sheet metal fabrications using the commonly welded metals available in sheet form. It provides standardized requirements for the qualification, production, and acceptance of welding or braze welding of nonstructural sheet metal components.

The AWS Committee on Welding of Sheet Metal was organized in May 1978 and has published six previous versions of D9.1.

The 1st edition, D9.1-80, Specification for Welding of Sheet Metal, was limited to the more common welding processes. The 2nd edition, D9.1-84, bore the same title, but was augmented to provide coverage of braze welding. The 3rd edition, D9.1-90, Sheet Metal Welding Code, was written to refine and clarify several areas of the standard and to upgrade it to the status of a code in order to enhance its use and to promote a minimum quality level for those who invoke it.

The 4th edition, D9.1M/D9.1:2000, Sheet Metal Welding Code, provides for maintenance of the document and updates to keep abreast of practices being encountered in sheet metal welding and joining processes since the last revision. The 5th edition D9.1M/D9.1:2006, Sheet Metal Welding Code, also provides for maintenance of the document and presents up to date practices in sheet metal welding and joining processes since the 2000 revision. The 6th edition D9.1M/D9.1:2012, Sheet Metal Welding Code, provides for maintenance of the document and incorporates many of the comments received during the balloting process for the 2006 edition.

The 7th edition D9.1/D9.1M:2017, Sheet Metal Welding Code, provides for maintenance of the document as well as some updates intended to enhance its use and to promote a minimum quality level for those who invoke it.
