Tubeco, Inc. | Specs – ASTM A High Strength Low Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube
This specification covers standard requirements for cold-formed welded and seamless high-strength, low-alloy round, square, rectangular, or special shaped structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction of bridges and buildings and for general qstm purposes where high strength and enhanced atmospheric corrosion resistance are required. Tubing having other dimen-sions may be furnished provided such tubing complies with all other requirements of this specification.
BIf chromium and silicon contents are each 0. When properly exposed to the atmosphere, this steel can be used bare asttm for many applications.
When this steel is used in welded construction. For a complete listing of all tubing sizes produced by Valmont, please visit our Steel Tubing Product Catalog. As a standard under ASTM A, electric resistance welded tubing is normally provided without removal of inside flash. For rectangular sections, the tolerance calculated for the larger flat dimension shall also apply to the smaller flat dimension. This abstract is aatm brief summary of xstm referenced standard.
ATolerances include allowance for convexity or concavity.
Chemical composition Grade Mfg. AApplies to specified wall thicknesses 0. Note 1 — Products manufactured to this specification may not be suitable for those applications where low temperature notch toughness properties may be important, such as dynamically loaded elements in welded structures, etc.
The atmospheric corrosion resistance of this ast, in most environments is substantially better than carbon steel with or without copper addition Note 2. When this steel is used in welded construction, the welding procedure shall be suitable awtm the steel and the intended service.
Tubing having other dimensions may be furnished provided such tubing complies with all other requirements of this specification. With the additional elements such as those noted above, the added strength of the steel itself allows for a lighter wall thickness of steel to be used than for carbon steel tubing in order to meet structural physical requirements. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The atmospheric corrosion resistance of this steel in most envi-ronments is substantially better than carbon steel with or without copper addition Note 2.
This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Please contact one of our knowledgeable sales staff members who will assist you with any further questions regarding this specification or with your specific tubing requirements.
Length tolerance for structural tubing shall be in accordance with the specified values. Outside dimension tolerances for square and rectangular tubing shall not exceed the specified plus and minus tolerances. Twist tolerances for square and rectangular structural tubing shall be indicated.
ABecause of the degree to which phosphorus segregates, roduct analysis for this element is not technologically appropriate for rephosphorized steels unless misapplication is clearly indicated. Under ASTM A, the corner radius for square and rectangular tubing shall not exceed three times the corner radius.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Heat and product analysis shall be performed wherein steel materials shall conform to the required chemical composition for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulphur, and copper.
The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Commonly referred to as weathering steel, ASTM A Type 4 high strength, low alloy HSLA steel utilizes elements such as copper, chromium, nickel and silicon to enhance the protection and resistance to atmospheric corrosion.
If flash control is required, please specify at time of quotation or order placement. NOTE 1-Products manufactured to this specification may not be suitable for those applications where low temperature notch toughness properties may be important, such as dynamically loaded elements in welded stuctures, etc. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
When properly exposed to the atmosphere, this steel can be used bare unpainted for many applications. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.
