Work Item
ASTM WK77967

Revision of A53/A53M-20 Standard Specification for Pipe, Steel, Black and Hot-Dipped, Zinc-Coated, Welded and Seamless

Rationale

I would like to add a Grade B to the current available Grades for Type F pipe in ASTM A53. The reason for pursuing this item is because there are customers of ours who are still requesting a Type F Grade B product in a specification they recognize, ASTM A53. There have been many improvements in current production and processing capabilities of Type F pipe through the years. We want to offer another domestic source of Grade B piping. There are customers that like the advantages of Type F pipe and offering another grade gives them more choices.
