John Grey is right black iron pipe is the strongest and most cost effective , but here’s the rub you need access to a threader to cut the threads onto the ends of the lenghts of pipe after you cut them. Also bare in mind the longer your run of pipe and number of elbows the more the resistance, so the less air pressure at the far end. I don’t know how big the shop is or what the load is on the line but likely a small shop would be fine with 1/2 pipe. Just try not to over do it with too many ells. Also consider installing a drain valve at your lowest sections.
