|Publication Date:||10 October 1996|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel pipes):||23.040.10|
1.1 This specification covers minimum-wall-thickne
1.2 The tubing sizes covered shall be 5/8 to 1 ¼-in. [15.9 to 31.8-mm] outside diameter, inclusive, with minimum wall thicknesses equal to or greater than 0.045 in. [1.1 mm].
1.3 Optional supplementary requirements are provided, and when desired, shall be stated in the order.
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation of this specification is specified in the order.
