A-53 Covers seamless and welded black and galvanized steel
Pipe furnished in the following types and grades:
Type F - furnace Butt Welded (also known as continuous

Type E - Electric-Resistance Welded, Grades A and B 1/8 in.
To 24 in. NPS
Type S - Seamless, Grades A and B 1/8 in. to 26 in. NPS
Except for Type F, pipe ordered to this specification is
suitable For forming, bending, and flanging. Grade B, the most
common, has a minimum yield of 35,000 psi.
A-72 Welded wrought iron pipe in Std. XS, and XXS weights suitable

corrosion than carbon steel, astm 72 is suited for protective
ciating such as galvanizing. Although highly resistant to
vibration, wrought iron has a somewhat low tensile strength
due to a low carbon content.
