    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is intended for evaluating the resistance of pipe coating materials when exposed to various concentrations of reagents or suspected soil contaminants. The test serves as a guide to investigators wishing to compare the relative merits of pipe-coating materials in specific environments. The choice of reagents, concentrations, duration of immersion, temperature of test, and properties to be reported are necessarily arbitrary and should be chosen to reflect conditions known to exist along the pipeline right-of-way.

    1.2 This test method may involve hazardous operations and equipment. This test method does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this test method to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
