    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions and tolerances, deflection load, crush resistance, flattening resistance, impact resistance, and solvent cement. A form of marking is also included. Plastic which does not meet the material requirements specified in Section 5 is excluded.

    Note 1—This specification was formerly issued under the title, 3-in. Thin Wall Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Plastic Drain, Waste, and Vent Pipe and Fittings.

    Note 2—Techniques for making solvent-cement joints are given in Practice D2855.

    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.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods 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.
