This European Technical Report recommends practices to be followed in the application and installation of thermoplastics pipes and associated fittings. These fall within the scope of EN 806-1 and, EN ISO 15874, EN ISO 15875, EN ISO 15876, EN ISO 15877 and EN ISO 22391 to be used for hot and/or cold water distribution intended for human consumption inside buildings. This document can also be used for heating installations if applicable, except for under floor heating for which EN 12164 can apply.
Guidance is also given on acceptable methods of jointing polybutylene (PB), crosslinked polyethylene (PE-X), polypropylene (PP), chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-C) and Polyethylene of raised temperature resistance (PE-RT) pipes and associated fittings, together with recommendations for their storage, handling and transportation.
