|Publication Date:||1 November 2008|
|ICS Code (Plastics pipes and fittings for non fluid use):||83.140.30|
This specification is intended to be a means of calling out plastic product used in the fabrication of end items or parts.
This specification covers requirements and test methods for the material, dimensions, and workmanship, and the properties of extruded- and compression-molded rod, and heavywalled tube manufactured from granular unfilled PTFE resin in accordance with Specification D 4894.
This specification covers rod and heavy-walled tubing made
wholly from polytetrafluoroethyl
The properties included in this specification are those required for the compositions covered. Requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications are described by using the classification system given in Section 4.
This specification allows for the use of recycled plastics as defined in Guide D 7209.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard in all property and dimensional tables.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
NOTE 1-Although this specification and ISO 13000-1 and ISO 13000-2 differ in approach or detail, data obtained using either are technically equivalent.
