Revision C, also a Noncurrency Notice, was published in May 1996. Unfortunately, a wrong specification was attached to that notice; such was labeled AMS 5779C, but the entire text was AMS 5775C. This AMS 5779D is being published to correct the clerical error.
This specification has been declared "NONCURRENT" by the Aerospace Materials Division, SAE, as of May 1996. It is recommended, therefore, that this specification not be specified for new designs.
This specification covers a corrosion and heat resistant nickel alloy wire in the form of covered welding electrodes. Primarily for shielded-metal-arc welding of parts fabricated from material of similar or dissimilar composition, particularly when the weld zone is required to have corrosion and heat resistance comparable to that of the parent metal.
