What does American Stainless Tubing have to offer you?

Long history of quality and service in the stainless tubing industry:

ASTI was founded in 1994 by the original three founders of

Romac Metals Inc. in the 1970′s. Romac Metals, Inc. was the

company the metals industry went to for high quality “mirror”

surface finish for stainless tubing. They pioneered the development

of mechanically buffed, mirror finish stainless steel tubing for

furniture and marine applications. Prior to their innovation,

ornamental stainless tubing was only offered in polished stainless

steel tubing on a commercial scale. Three generations of experience,

knowledge and sustainability in providing quality products and service

has been the integrity of their company mission and remains true today.

ISO 9001:2000 Certification

This certification specifies requirements for a quality management

system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to

consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable

through the effective application of the system, including all processes

of documented production procedures for a continual improvement

of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and

applicable regulatory requirements.

Stainless Tubing produced to ASTM A-554 specification

This is a standard specification for welded stainless steel

mechanical tubing, where appearance, mechanical properties

or corrosion resistance in needed.

304/L, 316/L and T-201

- 304/L: This is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel

that is adaptable for brazing or welding. It is non-hardenable

except by cold working and is non-magnetic except when cold

worked. It is a general purpose corrosion resistance grade of

stainless and is used in many applications, including: dairy,

food processing equipment, structural and ornamental construction,

along with other mechanical applications.

- 316/L: This is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel

with improved corrosion and heat resistance. It is non-hardenable

except when cold worked and is slightly magnetic when cold

worked. It exhibits improved corrosion resistance to chlorides.

Often it is used in pharmaceutical and textile applications,

as well as salt water marine applications.

- T-201: This is an austenitic chromium-nickel-manganese

stainless steel, developed to conserve nickel and its resulting

price fluctuates. it is quite suitable for cold forming, has excellent

resistance to many corrosive environments. It is often used in food

processing and architectural applications, and in many cases is a

very suitable substitute for 304/L tubing.
