This specification covers acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS) sewer pipe, produced by single extrusion or simultaneous multiple coextrusion. This specification also covers fittings. The requirements of this specification are intended to provide pipe and fittings suitable for nonpressure drainage of sewage, surface water, and certain other liquid wastes, in applications outside the building limits. Pipe produced by simultaneous multiple coextrusion shall be classified as “Coex.” Flattening, impact resistance, joint tightness, and pipe stiffness tests shall be performed to conform with specified requirements.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS) sewer pipe, produced by single extrusion or simultaneous multiple coextrusion. This specification also covers fittings. Included are requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, chemical resistance, water resistance, and joint tightness. A form of marking to indicate compliance with this specification is also included.
1.2 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.
The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section , of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
