ASTM A269 outlines the requirements for seamless and welded round tubing fashioned from austenitic stainless steel, from 1/8” nominal up to 24” in overall diameter. These straight-cut lengths can also be certified as either 304/304L or 316/316L as needed. Additionally, ASTM A312 specifies seamless and welded austenitic stainless steel pipes for other applications.
When it comes to obtaining ASTM A269 tubing, you have two forms to choose from: welded and seamless. Available in either 304/304L or 316/316L variations, the usual look for this tubing is the brilliant annealed finish, providing it with a polished and shimmering appearance. Other popular finishes are satin (or brushed) and mill.
Custom cuts of A269 tubing are available in any pre-determined length, while Tubing supplied in coil form can range up to an impressive 2300 feet long.
To form welded tubing, cold-rolled strips of stainless steel are bent into tubular shapes and then connected through a welding process. As a result, the seam that binds it together is eliminated, leading to the production of seamless, smooth tubing. Although cheaper to produce than seamless tubing, welded metal pipes are often less durable and more prone to leakage.
Stainless steel heated and molded into a tube is the base of seamless tubing, which offers sturdiness and better anti-corrosion power. This type of tubing is pricier than welded tubing but offers a greater degree of protection.
A diverse range of industries rely on ASTM A269 tubing – from manufacturing to research, these tubes are a cornerstone for a variety of applications.

ASTM A269 tubing is constructed from austenitic stainless steel for a corrosion-resistant, hardwearing product. Performance-wise, it is vastly popular in the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries. This tubing comes both welded and seamless, offering great flexibility. To suit your client’s needs, you also get a choice of finishes – bright annealed, satin and mill – all designed to guarantee a great finish. Welding of the tubing itself is effortless too.
