|Publication Date:||27 May 1988|
|ICS Code (Other pipeline components):||23.040.99|
1.1 This test method provides an accelerated means of determining the relative sealing abilities of pipeline patching materials that are used to seal holidays in pipeline coatings on steel pipe. This test method is intended for utilization of specimens of pipeline coatings on small-diameter pipe, for representing coatings used for buried or submerged service, and where the purpose of the coating is to provide an electrical barrier between the steel pipe and its environment.
1.2 This test method is not intended for evaluating patch materials that are overlapped upon themselves.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parenthes are for information only.
1.4 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.
