scope:

1.1 This practice covers requirements and sampling frequency for the use of post-consumer and post-industrial recycled plastic materials in thermoplastic pipe used in storm drainage, storm sewer and sanitary sewer applications.

1.2 The requirements of this practice provide definitions, requirements and test protocols for recycled plastic materials to be used in the production of polyethylene (PE) pipe for gravity flow applications.

Note 1: Non-pressure applications pertain principally to any municipal or private facilities for storm drainage, storm sewer, culvert and sanitary sewer applications. The products utilizing the criteria under this practice are not intended for any pressure pipe applications, such as water or gas pipelines.

1.3 Units-The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents: therefore, each system shall be used independent of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
