This specification covers cold-drawn buttweld carbon steel tubes for use as round, square, rectangular or special shape mechanical tubing. The carbon steel can be made unless a specific type of melting process is required by the purchaser. Heat and product analysis shall be made to determine the specified percentages of chemical elements to which steel tubes shall conform to. The tubing shall be free of injurious defects and shall have a workmanlike finish. Unless otherwise specified, both outside and inside surfaces of the tubing shall be coated with a film of rust-retarding oil before shipping.
