This International Standard establishes a nomenclature for
― brazing, soldering and weld brazing;
― thermal cutting;
― mechanical joining;
― adhesive bonding;
with each process identified by a reference number. This document is applicable for all materials where the joining processes are appropriate.
NOTE In addition to terms in English and French, two of the three official ISO languages, this International Standard gives the equivalent terms in German; these are published under the responsibility of the member body for Germany (DIN). However, only the terms given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms.
