    A Minimum: The element may be determined arithmetically by difference.
    B Remainder: The element may be determined arithmetically by difference.

    1.2 Pipe and tube shall be supplied in the cold worked or cold worked and precipitations hardened or solution annealed plus precipitation hardened and descaled conditions. When atmosphere control is used, descaling is not necessary.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
