Standard Specification for Coextruded Composite Pipe
|Publication Date:||10 May 2000|
1.1 This specification covers coextruded composite pipe, produced by a coextrusion die system, in which the concentric layers are formed and combined before exiting the die.
1.1.1 Materials listed in the material section are permitted to be used in any layer of the coextruded composite pipe. When coextruded composite pipe is produced with three layers, the middle layer is permitted to be solid or thermally foamed.
1.1.2 The function of this specification is to provide standardization of product, to produce technical data, and to serve as a purchasing guide.
1.2 Compounds that do not meet the requirements of the material section are excluded.
1.3 The coextruded composite pipe is permitted to be perforated in accordance with any specified standard or by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.
1.4 The coextruded composite pipe is permitted to be belled for joining by solvent cementing or belled for joining by an elastomeric seal (gaskets), in accordance with any specified standard or by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.
1.5 Recommendations for storage, joining, installation, and rationale are listed in Appendixes X1, X2, X3, and X4, respectively.
1.6 When installed underground, coextruded composite pipe shall be installed in accordance with Practice D2321.
1.7 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. A companion standard written in SI units is under development.
1.8 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.
