ASTM Steel Tube Standards & Steel Properties
ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) guidelines exist to standardize steel properties across industries around the globe. While the ASTM organization does not enforce compliance with these guidelines, ASTM steel tube standards have been adopted by many state, federal, and international regulations.

We’ll help you understand ASTM steel tube standards or navigate the terms and abbreviations related to your steel tube project specifications while finding the best solution for your project.
What is ASTM A500 Steel Tube Used For?ASTM A500 steel tube is a high-strength carbon steel option for mechanical or structural assemblies and high-pressure applications. It is also suitable for general steam, water, and air transport systems. This cold-formed steel tube is available welded.
- See ASTM A500 Specification Sheet for more.
What is ASTM A513?Defined primarily on mechanical properties, ASTM A513 standards apply to cold-formed welded round, square, and rectangular steel tube. It is widely used in commercial and residential assemblies due to its durability, versatility, and cost-effectiveness, making ASTM 513 steel tube ideal for racking, furniture, fencing, ornamental fixtures, decorative handrails, and more.

What is ASTM A106B Steel Pipe?ASTM A106B steel pipe, also called A106 seamless pressure pipe and ASME SA106 pipe, is commonly used in applications requiring fluids or gasses to be transported at high temperatures. It is found in power plants, oil and gas refineries, petrochemical processing plants, and similar facilities.
- See ASTM A106B Specification Sheet for more.
What is A53 Steel Used For?ASTM A53 steel pipe, also known as ASME SA53 pipe, can be used in mechanical or high-pressure applications and general steam, water, gas, or air transportation systems. It is ideal for welding and is often applied for any operation utilizing coiling, bending, and flanging.
- See ASTM A53 Specification Sheet for more.
What are the Steel Properties of ASTM A1085?ASTM A1085 steel tube standards apply to hollow structural sections (HSS) in any shape or size. HSS provides enhanced performances in seismic environments or fatigue-related applications. ASTM A1085 steel properties include tighter wall thickness tolerances for increased efficiency.
