    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the technical requirements for the production and supply of carbon and carbon-manganese steel tubes of round, square, rectangular or other non-circular cross-section, produced by either cold-forming or hot-forming, intended for use in mechanical applications, and not subject to internal pressure.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This standard specifies the technical requirements for the production and supply of carbon and carbon- manganese steel tubes of round, square, rectangular or other non-circular cross-sectionproduced by either cold-forming or hot-forming, and intended for use in mechanical applications.NOTE: Guidelines to purchasers on requirements that must be specified by the purchaser and those that must be agreed at the time of enquiry and/or order are given in Appendix A.
