    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy drawn tubes in straight lengths and coils for general purpose applications in the alloys (Note 3), and tempers shown in Table 2. Coiled tubes are generally available only as round tubes with a wall thickness not exceeding 0.083 in. and only in non-heat-treatable alloys.

    Note 1-For drawn seamless tubes, see Specification B210, for tubes to be used in condensers and heat exchangers, Specification B234, and for seamless pipe, Specification B241/B241M. Note 2-Throughout this specification use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.

    1.2 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.

    1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B483 has been developed-B483M; therefore, no metric equivalents appear in this specification.
