1.1 This specification covers austenitic, stainless steel, needle tubing in hard-drawn tempers for industrial applications.
1.2 In general, needle tubing describes small-diameter tubing with outside diameters (ODs) in the range of 0.008 to 0.203 in. (0.2 to 5.2 mm) with nominal wall thicknesses in the range of 0.002 to 0.015 in. (0.05 to 0.4 mm). Needle tubing gages are normally 6 through 33.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
