Frequently Asked Questions
LTP© is the term we use for any type of material that may not be in good enough condition to be sold as prime quality. It could be overstock, odd size, rusty, clean, pitted, damaged, reject, miscut or, in some cases, just a great buy! In many cases, LTP© products don’t have mill test reports available.
While our LTP© steel and pipe is purchased in many different grades and types, we don’t sell it as a certain grade of material unless it is certified to be that grade and/or has mill test reports. In many cases, we mark the material with the information that it had mentioned on it when it came to us. We can’t be certain as to the grade, so use this information at your own risk.
Unless you need mill certification for your material or you must have very clean material, we feel that it is of a great value to buy our LTP© steel or pipe. Our customers typically save from 10-40% or more, depending on the type of material purchased.
Round tubing has two primary advantages: weight and cost. It uses less metal than a square tube, so not only weighs less but costs less in raw materials. Buying LESS-THAN-PRIME© round steel tubing from Texas Iron & Metal further reduces the price tag.
Round tubing is also strong and sturdy when under pressure. When formed, it maintains its shape and prevents crimping or breaking. The cylindrical nature of round tubing makes it easier to properly shape or bend the metal, and when done correctly, it resists concaving or distortions.
