ASTM WK44291

    Work Item: ASTM WK44291 - Revision of D3350 - 12e1 Standard Specification for Polyethylene Plastics Pipe and Fittings Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3350 - 12e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.15 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    This revision to Section 4.2 of ASTM D3350 is to align the wording in this section with the scope of this standard. Section 4.2 requires that materials used in PE pipe and fittings be specified by D3350 cell classification. PE pipe and fittings standards are not under D20 jursidiction but under F17 Plastics Piping Systems Committee jurisdiction. D20 has no jurisdiction to mandate how PE materials are specified in F17 product specifications. Additionally, the scope of D3350 indicates that D3350 is not for use to deterrmine suitability for a specific application. All of the F17 PE pipe and fittings specifications are for specific applications such as water, gas, industrial fluids, etc.
