|Publication Date:||1 November 2006|
|ICS Code (Plastics pipes):||23.040.20|
1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, flattening resistance, impact resistance, pipe stiffness, extrusion quality, joining system, and a form of marking for large diameters, 18 to 48 in. poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) sewer pipe and fittings with integral bell elastomeric seal joints and smooth inner walls.
1.2 The requirements of this specification are intended to provide pipe and fittings suitable for nonpressure drainage of sewage and surface water. Pipe and fittings produced to this specification should be installed in accordance with Practice D 2321. Industrial waste disposal lines should be installed only with the specific approval of the governing code authority since temperatures in excess of 140°F (60°C) and chemicals not commonly found in drains and sewers may be encountered.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability or regulatory limitations prior to use.
