ASTM WK36605

    Revision of D2846 / D2846M - 09be1 Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D2846 / D2846M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.61 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The purpose of the revision is to incorporate CPVC pipe compounds with a higher HDB. The material designation that I plan to add to the standard will have an HDB of 4000 psi at 73F and 1250 psi at 180F. These materials were introduced for commercial use several years ago and are currently covered by an NSF-SE listing.
