We stock a significant amount of domestic pipe with a letter, or material that has been deemed domestic by our 5-step inspection and quality control process. The material that has passed this rigorous process is designated as our “Stars & Stripes” qualified pipe. When the pipe is marked with the telltale red, white, and blue band, you can be 100% sure that the pipe has a well-documented lineage that can be traced back to a domestic manufacturer.

“Stars & Stripes” Domestic w/Letter is supplied with (2) coupon yield and tensile test per load to verify the material is 80KSI MIN, as well as ownership history or stencil verification to prove that the material meets Domestic requirements. “Stars and Stripes” qualified pipe is our most economical and cost-effective tool to help reduce the cost. In a highly competitive market, we give our customers a price advantage over their competition and help them win the bid!
