This part of ISO 15877 specifies the characteristics of fittings made from chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVCC) for piping systems intended to be used for hot and cold water installations within buildings for the conveyance of water, whether or not intended for human consumption (domestic systems) and for heating systems under design pressures and temperatures according to the class of application (see Table 1 of ISO 15877-1:2009).
This part of ISO 15877 covers a range of service conditions (application classes) and design pressure classes. For values of TD, Tmax and Tmal in excess of those in Table 1 of ISO 15877-1:2009, this part of ISO 15877 does not apply.
NOTE 1 It is the responsibility of the purchaser or specifier to make the appropriate selections from these aspects, taking into account their particular requirements and any relevant national regulations and installation practices or codes.
It also specifies the parameters for the test methods referred to in this part of ISO 15877.
In conjunction with the other parts of ISO 15877, it is applicable to PVC-C fittings, their joints and joints with components of PVC-C, other plastics and non-plastics materials intended to be used for hot and cold water installations.
This part of ISO 15877 is applicable to fittings of the following types:
- fittings for solvent cement joints;
- mechanical fittings;
- fittings with incorporated inserts.
NOTE 2 Fittings made from PVC-C are manufactured by injection-moulding.
