Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers machine-made reinforced thermosetting resin pressure pipe (RTRP) manufactured by the filament winding process. This specification does not include reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP), which is another type of fiberglass pipe. The pipes are generally classified by type, grade, class, and hydrostatic design. In addition, a secondary cell classification system defines the basic mechanical properties of the pipe. The resins, reinforcements, colorants, fillers, and other materials, when combined as a composite structure, shall produce a pipe that shall meet the performance requirements of this specification. Materials shall be tested and the individual grades shall conform to the specified values of dimensions and tolerances, long-term static hydrostatic strength, long-term cyclic hydrostatic strength, short-term hydrostatic failure strength, longitudinal tensile properties, and stiffness factor.
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 machine-made reinforced thermosetting resin pressure pipe (RTRP) manufactured by the filament winding process up to 24 in. nominal size. Included are a classification system and requirements for materials, mechanical properties, dimensions, performance, methods of test, and marking.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
Note 1—The term "fiberglass pipe" as described in Section 3 of this specification applies to both reinforced thermosetting resin pipe (RTRP) and reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP). This specification covers only reinforced thermosetting resin pipe (RTRP).
Note 2—This specification is applicable to RTRP where the ratio of outside diameter to wall thickness is 10:1 or more.
Note 3—There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
Note 4—For the purposes of this standard, polymer does not include natural polymers.
