Covers seamless carbon Grades A & B steel pipe for high pressure and high temperature service. Pipe is suitable for bending, flanging, and similar forming operations and for welding. Applications include: Refineries, Power Plants, Boilers, Ship Building, and other specialized applications.

Heat Treatment

Hot-finished pipe need not be heat treated. Cold-drawn pipe shall be heat treated after the final cold draw pass at a temperature of 1200°F or higher.

Hydrostatic & Nondestructive Electric Testing

Hydrostatic inspection test pressure is 2500 psi for sizes NPS 2 and under. Test pressure shall be maintained for a minimum of 5 seconds. When specified by the purchaser, pipe may be tested by the nondestructive electric test in lieu of the hydrostatic test.

End Finish Plain End:

NPS 1-1/2 and smaller shall be either plain end square cut or plain end beveled at the option of the manufacturer. NPS 2 ends shall be beveled to angle 30° +5°, -0° with a root face of 1/16” ± 1/32”.

Threaded Pipe:



Threads comply with ANSI Standard B 1.20.1


Couplings comply with ASTM Standard A 865

Available Coatings

ASTM A 106 seamless pipe is available in four different coatings:

  • Exclusive Blue Diamond® Coating
  • Hot-Dipped Galvanized
  • Pickled and Oiled
  • Bare

Permissible Variations in Weight per Foot

Pipe shall not vary more than 10% over and 3.5% under the standard specified.

Product Marking

Each length of pipe is continuously stenciled to show the manufacturer, specification (A106), size (O.D. & wall), “A & B” for Grades A & B, 2500 psi, length and heat number
Manufacturing Location
All product furnished by Wheatland Tube Company and Sharon Tube Company are manufactured by Sharon Tube in Sharon, PA, USA.

Hot-Dipped Galvanized

Pipe is galvanized to the requirements of ASTM A 53. The average weight of zinc coating shall not be less than 1.8 ounces per square foot of surface (inside and outside).

When galvanized pipe is bent or otherwise fabricated to a degree that causes the zinc coating to stretch or compress beyond the limit of elasticity, some flaking of the coating may occur.
