This SAE Standard covers normalized electric-resistance welded flash-controlled single-wall, low-carbon steel pressure tubing intended for use as pressure lines and in other applications requiring tubing of a quality suitable for bending, double flaring, beading, forming, and brazing. Material produced to this specification is not intended to be used for single flare applications, due to the potential leak path caused by the Inside Diameter (ID) weld bead or scarfed region. Assumption of risks when using this material for single flare applications shall be defined by agreement between the producer and purchaser.
This specification also covers SAE J356 Type-A tubing. The mechanical properties and performance requirements of SAE J356 and SAE J356 Type-A are the same. The SAE J356 or SAE J356 Type-A designation define unique manufacturing differences between coiled and straight material. Nominal reference working pressures for this tubing are listed in ISO 10763 for metric tubing, and SAE J1065 for inch tubing. SAE J356 is produced in straight lengths that undergo a secondary heat treat operation. SAE J356 Type-A tubing is heat treated in-line to relieve stresses, and is produced in coil form.
In an effort to standardize within a global marketplace and ensure that companies can remain competitive in an international market, it is the intent to convert to metric tube sizes, which will:
Lead to one global system
Guide users to preferred system
Eliminate inventory duplications
This SAE Standard has been revised as part of a Five-Year Review. Document changes include: revisions to the scope, applicable documents, and related publications lists; new and revised verbiage in Section 4; new verbiage in 5.2; clarified 5.3 requirement; and revised or added notes to 8.8 and 8.9. Verbiage has been updated throughout the standard to align the document with other recently revised bulk tube standards.

The Metallic Tubing Subcommittee of the FCCTC develops and maintains SAE Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports relating to metallic tubing with an intended use in pressure applications. Participants in the FCCTC Metallic Tubing Subcommittee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
