Explanation: The word obviously comes from English, and I am assuming that the "d" in cold got dropped.
Tubing can be produced by cold rolling and cold drawing rather than hot, to impart particular properties to it.
The original Webco operations facility, Southwest Tube is still going strong producing welded carbon steel boiler and heat exchanger tubing, plus cold-drawn and welded mechanical tubing. We also specialize in custom finishing of tubing for Webco customers, including custom lengths, chamfering, and swaging.
Second ref. (which concerns offshore technology):
Special Metals markets a range of alloys for sour-well components. The product line constitutes the broadest selection of corrosion-resistant alloy materials available from any supplier.
It is a single source for alloys that deliver high performance in any known environment - from bottom hole, to wellhead, to processing plant. Included are alloys strengthened by heat treatment as well as by cold work.
