This Standard specifies requirements for fittings to be used with polyethylene pipe manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 4130 or AS 2698.2 or POP 009. This Standard is applicable to fittings manufactured for the conveyance of water, fuel gas, and other fluids including compressed air.
NOTE For continuous use at temperatures above 20 °C refer to AS/NZS 2033 for polyethylene materials.
Section 1 specifies general requirements that apply to all fittings except where subsequent sections detail or exempt specific requirements for particular types of fittings.
This Standard is not applicable to fittings that achieve end-load restraint by processes that reduce pipe and/or fitting spigot thickness to < 0.9 Tmin as defined by AS/NZS 4130.
Requirements for demonstrating conformity to this Standard are specified in Appendix A.
