Cold Drawn Seamless Mechanical Tubing (CDS)

Cold Drawn Seamless Mechanical Tubing (CDS) is a cold drawn 1026 steel tube. Produced from piercing hot rolled bar stock, the cold drawing process increases the tube’s physical properties reducing the cost of machine time. Cold drawn seamless tubing provides a better uniformed OD and ID, enhanced machinability, increased strength, and tighter tolerances compared to hot finish seamless products.
