1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, vicat softening temperature, impact resistance, pipe stiffness, pipe flattening, perforations, and markings for spirally wound steel-reinforced polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe and fittings of nominal sizes 150 through 3600 mm. The spirally wound PVC pipes governed by this specification are intended for use in underground applications in which soil provides support for their flexible walls. These pipes will be used for gravity flow and nonpressure applications such as sewage, rainwater, drainage, industrial waste, drainage for highway and motorway applications, and the conduits of hydroelectric power plant applications. Pipes are manufactured with inner surfaces that are smooth and outer surfaces that are profile. The steel reinforcement is used according to project requirements, if necessary. NOTE 1--PVC ribbed bands are extruded in the factory and stocked on reels. The reels of ribbed PVC bands are generally sent to the construction sites and spirally wound to form the pipes on site. 1.2 Units-The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.3 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.
