    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS) pipe produced by single extrusion or simultaneous multiple coextrusion, in Schedule 40 and 80 sizes and pressure-rated for water (see Appendix). Included are criteria for classifying ABS plastic pipe materials and ABS plastic pipe, a system of nomenclature for ABS plastic pipe, and requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, burst pressure, and extrusion quality. Methods of marking are also given.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, this specification was withdrawn in November 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS) pipe produced by single extrusion or simultaneous multiple coextrusion, in Schedule 40 and 80 sizes and pressure-rated for water (see Appendix). Included are criteria for classifying ABS plastic pipe materials and ABS plastic pipe, a system of nomenclature for ABS plastic pipe, and requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, burst pressure, and extrusion quality. Methods of marking are also given.

    1.2 The products covered by this specification are intended for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids only, which are chemically compatible with the piping materials. Due to inherent hazards associated with testing components and systems with compressed air or other compressed gases some manufacturers do not allow pneumatic testing of their products. Consult with specific product/component manufacturers for their specific testing procedures prior to pneumatic testing.

    Note 1—Pressurized (compressed) air or other compressed gases contain large amounts of stored energy which present serious saftey hazards should a system fail for any reason.

    1.3 The text of this specification references notes, footnotes, and appendixes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.

    1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this specification. 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.
