    WK42638

    1. Scope

    This specification covers requirements and test methods for annular corrugated profile wall polyethylene pipe with an interior liner. The inside diameters covered are 4 to 60 in. [100 to 1500 mm]. The requirements of this specification are intended to provide non-pressure (gravity flow) pipe and fittings suitable for underground use for non-pressure storm sewer and subsurface drainage systems. Pipe and fittings produced in accordance with this specification shall be installed in compliance Practice D2321

    Presently there is not a standard for Corrugated HDPE pipe made with recycled materials that requires a stress cracking resistance value that is comparable to the AASHTO M294 requirements for virgin Corrugated HDPE pipe. This standard is needed to provide higher performance recycled materials into the highway and municipal markets for corrugated HDPE pipe.
