Standard Specification for
Steel Line Pipe, Black, Plain End, Laser Beam Welded 1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation A 1006/A 1006M; the number immediately following the designation indicates the
year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last
1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers laser beam welded, black,
plain end steel pipe for use in the conveyance of fluids under
pressure. Pipe in sizes NPS 1 to 26, inclusive, with nominal
wall thickness 0.750 in. [19.1 mm] or less, as given in Table 1,
is included. Pipe having other dimensions, in this size range,
may be furnished provided such pipe complies with all other
requirements of this specification.
1.2 It is intended that the pipe be capable of being circum-
ferentially welded in the field when welding procedures in
accordance with the requirements of the applicable pipeline
construction code are used.
1.3 The values stated in either inch-pound units or in SI
units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text,
the SI units are shown in brackets. The values in each system
are not exact equivalents: therefore, each system is to be used
independently of the other, without combining values in any
way.
1.4 The following precautionary statement pertains to the
test method portion, Section 14, of this specification. This
standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns,
if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user
of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health
practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limita-
tions prior to use.
