ASTM

The Silmet ASTM product line is available in the most common types: K, L, M AND DWV.

Characteristics

The Silmet ASTM product line is able to satisfy all the requirements for the hydraulic/plumbing supply and for DWV applications.


Supply

All phases of the production process, starting from acceptance of raw materials, are subject to very severe sampling and control plans aimed at guaranteeing that the end products achieve very high-quality standards.

The tubes that meet these standards can be supplied in any of several tempers:

O50 : Light Annealed
O60: Soft Annealed
H55: Light Drawn
H58: Drawn
H80: Hard Drawn
and in coils and straight lengths, in lengths recommended in the standards and / or requested by the customer.
