Plastics Piping System Components and Related Materials
|Publication Date:||21 June 2018|
The physical, performance, and health effects requirements in this Standard apply to thermoplastic and thermoset plastic piping system components including, but not limited to, pipes, fittings, valves, joining materials, gaskets, and appurtenances. The established physical, performance, and health effects requirements also apply to materials (resin or blended compounds) and ingredients used to manufacture plastic piping system components. This Standard provides definitions and requirements for materials, ingredients, products, quality assurance, marking, and recordkeeping. Plastic piping system components which are manufactured to one of the normative references in Section 2 and do not have integral connections specifically intended for plastic piping systems are not covered by this Standard.
This Standard establishes minimum physical, performance, and health effects requirements for plastic piping system components and related materials. These criteria were established for the protection of public health and the environment.
