PRODUCT INFORMATION
Michigan Seamless Tube offers a full line of mechanical and pressure products to ASTM
ASME and API in a broad selection of grades, shapes and sizes for a variety of
applications: Power Generation, Boilers, OCTG (Oil Country), Aircraft & Aerospace,
Automotive, Transportation, Heavy Equipment, Agriculture, and Mining to name just a few.

We specialize in quenched and tempered tubular products through strategic alliances
with state-of-the-art heat treating facilities.

Michigan Seamless Tube is TUV, QS-9000, and ISO 9001:2000 certified. MSTube also
meets ASTM/ASME, AMS, SAE, DIN, JIS and military specifications. MSTube offers NCA-
3800 nuclear capabilities and complies to “Buy American” requirements.

TUBING Mechanical Tubing is cold drawn (cold finished) and possesses exceptional strength-to-
weight ratios, excellent surface quality, and dimensional accuracy in a wide range of
mechanical properties.

Pressure Tubing requires an uncompromising level of quality because of the critical
end-use applications. Strict production standards and procedures are required to meet
the precise ASTM/ASME and individual specifications required for heat exchangers,
condenser and boilers. We offer complete non-destructive testing equipment including
ultrasonic, eddy current and hydrostatic to ensure quality standards are met for all
worldwide industry and customer specifications.We produce MLR (multi lead rifled)
boiler tubing.

4130 Aircraft Tubing is cold drawn (cold finished), stress relieved annealed and heat
treated to meet the needs of the aircraft and aerospace industry. MSTube 4130 is
certified to the following general specifications: A519, MIL-T-6736 B (AMS-T-6736A), AMS-
6371 and AMS-6360 with decarburization levels to AMS-6371.
WE MEET DOMESTIC-ONLY REQUIREMENTS..

PIPE Standard Pipe is available in numerous grades, alloys and specifications. As design
engineers find more uses for pipe, and operational requirements on pipe are more
demanding, today’s specifications are intensely precise. Michigan Seamless Tube is capable
of supplying steel pipe of impressive superior quality to meet exact specifications. Cold
drawn seamless pipe is produced to 1/2” IPS through 4” IPS schedules (12.7 mm IPS
through 101.6 mm IPS). Single and double random, or custom lengths. Michigan Seamless
offers NCA-3800 nuclear capabilities.
