This standard specifies two test methods, designated method A and method B, for rapid testing of the leaktightness of glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) pipes and fittings under short-term internal pressure. Method A is a hydraulic test applicable to a pipe under uniaxial stress. Method B is a pneumatic test applicable to pipes and fittings.
