Round Tubing

Round Tubing refers to a cylindrical hollow tube with a circular cross-section. It is commonly used in various applications across different industries due to its versatility and structural properties.



Round tubing can be manufactured from a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and other alloys. The choice of material depends on factors such as strength requirements, corrosion resistance, and the specific application.


The dimensions of round tubing are typically specified by its outer diameter (OD) and wall thickness. Common dimensions are specified in inches or millimeters.


Structural Components: Round tubing is often used in construction for structural components, such as columns, beams, and supports.

Piping: In plumbing and fluid transport applications, round tubing is used as pipes.

Automotive: It is employed in the automotive industry for components such as roll cages and exhaust systems.

Furniture: Round tubing is used in the production of furniture, especially for frames and supports.

Industrial Equipment: Used in the manufacturing of industrial equipment and machinery.

Strength and Rigidity: Round tubing provides excellent strength and rigidity, making it suitable for load-bearing applications.

Welding and Fabrication: Round tubing is easily weldable, allowing for customization and fabrication to suit specific project requirements. It can be cut, bent, and joined through welding processes.

Finishes: Round tubing can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), polished, painted, or coated for enhanced corrosion resistance.

Seamless vs. Welded: Round tubing can be seamless or welded. Seamless tubing is produced without a seam, providing a smooth internal surface, while welded tubing is created by welding together strips of metal.
