ASTM WK43952

    Revision of F412 - 13 Standard Terminology Relating to Plastic Piping Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F412 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.91 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Recent changes to ASTM F441 and F442 assert a four digit material abbreviation for CPVC. As an example, section 3.2.4 of ASTM F441 states standard thermoplastic pipe materials designation codeThe pipe materials designation code shall consist of the abbreviation CPVC for the type of plastic, followed by the ASTM type and grade in Arabic numerals and the design stress in units of 100 psi (0.7 MPa) with any decimal figures dropped. . . Thus a complete material code shall consist of four letters and four figures for CPVC plastic pipe materials (see Section 5).
