ASTM A500 is a standard specification for cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel structural tubing in round, square, and rectangular shapes. This material has excellent strength-to-weight ratios and is suitable for use in a variety of structural applications. It has a minimum yield strength of 46,000 psi and a minimum tensile strength of 58,000 psi, making it a strong and durable material. Additionally, it is easy to weld, cut, form, and machine.

The normal use cases for ASTM A500 include structural applications, such as buildings, bridges, and highways. It is also commonly used in the manufacturing of machinery, furniture, and appliances. Its versatility and strength make it a popular choice for a wide range of applications that require structural integrity and durability.

At, ASTM A500 is available in various forms, including hot rolled steel square tubing, hot rolled steel rectangular tubing, and hot rolled steel structural pipe. The hot rolled steel square tubing is available in sizes ranging from .5 inch to 6 inches and can be cut to length. The hot rolled steel rectangular tubing is available in sizes ranging from 1x2 inch to 3x4 inch and can be cut to length. The hot rolled steel structural pipe is available from .5 inch to 4-inch diameters and can be cut to length.
