|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
|ICS Code (Plastics fittings):||23.040.45|
This specification describes requirements and test methods for the qualification of Polyamide 11 (PA 11) bodied mechanical fittings for use with outside diameter controlled Polyamide 11 (PA 11), nominal 2 pipe size (IPS), and smaller complying with Specification D2513. Additionally, the requirements and test methods for the qualification of Polyamide 12 (PA12) bodied mechanical fittings for use with outside diameter controlled Polyamide 11 (PA11) nominal 2 in pipe size (IPS) and smaller complying with Specification D2513 and outside diameter controlled Polyamide 12 (PA12) nominal 2 in pipe size (IPS) and smaller complying with Specification F2785. In addition, it specifies general requirements of the material from which these fittings are made.
The test methods described in this specification are not intended to be used as routine quality tests.
This specification covers the types of mechanical fittings covered in 3.2.1.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
