Not necessarily. There are many types of Sch 40, just like there are many types of hot rolled and cold rolled. I know I have 1018 HREW square and rectangle in the garage.

Thats nothing but carbon content. I was referring to the ASTM material spec, in the case of the tube I use, its ASTM A500, grade B. Grade C is stronger, but not not common, and doesn't bend well. A500 B and C are considered structural tubing. A53b is also decent for structures, but butt welded Sch40 for home depot would be crap.
