    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for welded and seamless carbon steel pipe nipples, black and zinc-coated (hot-dip galvanized), and welded and seamless austenitic stainless steel pipe nipples in standard steel pipe sizes from 1/8to 12 in. inclusive, in standard or special lengths.

    1.1.1 Welded Carbon SteelPipe nipples ordered under these requirements are intended for general uses, as described by Specification A 53/A 53M.

    1.1.2 Seamless Carbon SteelPipe nipples ordered under these requirements are intended for general and special uses, as described by the applicable Specifications A 53/A 53M and A 106/A 106M ( see 4.1.1).

    1.1.3 Austenitic Stainless SteelPipe nipples ordered under these requirements are intended for high-temperature and general corrosion service, as described by Specification A 312/A 312M (see 4.1.2).

    1.1.4 The text for this specification contains notes and/or footnotes that provide explanatory material. Such notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables, do not contain any mandatory language.
