AS NZS 1167.1 pdf download – Welding and brazing—Filler metals Part 1: Filler metal for brazing and braze welding
1 SCOPE This Standard specifies requirements for filler metals in all forms for brazing and braze welding processes. It includes requirements for chemical composition and analysis, packing and marking. In addition, a standard form of colour coding designed to be mutually acceptable to manufacturers and users has been recommended for identification purposes. NOTE: In this Standard, the term brazing is used to imply both processes.

4 CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND ANALYSIS
The chemical composition of the brazing alloy, determined in accordance with the relevant methods of the appropriate volume of the current book of ANSI/ASTM Standards, or in accordance with other methods that are not less accurate, shall comply with the appropriate requirements given in Tables 1 to 4. NOTE: Appendix A gives Australian alloy designations and their European, American, and ISO equivalents.
5 IDENTIFICATION Individual items of filler metal shall be identified by either embossing or colour coding. Where colour coding is used, the colours employed should follow the colour guidance given in Tables 1 to 4.
6 FORM AND SIZE Specification of the required form and size is a matter for the purchaser at the time of placing the order. If required, filler rods may be supplied coated with a suitable brazing flux.
7 PACKING Brazing filler metals shall be packed to guard against damage and deterioration during transportation, handling and storage. 8 GENERAL SAFETY WARNINGS A label shall be attached or a statement displayed with at least the following warning:
9 IDENTIFICATION AND MARKING
Each container, package, spool or mandrel of brazing filler metal shall be clearly marked with the following information:
(a) The words ‘Designation to AS/NZS 1167.1’ followed by the brazing alloy designation in accordance with Tables 1 to 4, as appropriate, e.g., Designation to AS/NZS 1167.1—A2.
(b) Name of manufacturer.
(c) Contents of package, nominal size and mass.
(d) Warnings (see Clause 8).
(e) Manufacturer’s batch number
