ASTM WK44870

    Revision of D3034 - 08 Standard Specification for Type PSM Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Sewer Pipe and Fittings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3034 - 14a

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.62 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The impact resistance test in this standard allows only the use of a 20 lb weight, which requires a height of over 10 ft to achieve the energy required for most of the trade sizes. A review of F679, F794 and F949 (other PVC sewer standards) shows that they allow a weight of either 20 lb or 30 lb-keeping the height of 10 ft or less. This project is to add the option to use a 30 lb weight when performing the impact resistance test according to this standard.
