Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers machine-made glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin pressure pipe manufactured by the centrifugal casting process. Pipe covered by this specification has been found suitable for conveying gases, petroleum products, or corrosive fluids. For the purposes of this standard, polymer does not include natural polymers. Pipe meeting this specification shall be categorized by the prescribed long-term static or cyclic hydrostatic design basis when tested. Additionally, the pipe shall meet the applicable cell limit requirements for short-term rupture strength, longitudinal tensile strength, tensile modulus, and pipe stiffness.
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 glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin pressure pipe manufactured by the centrifugal casting process. Included are a classification system and requirements for materials, mechanical properties, dimensions, performance, test methods, and marking.
Note 1—The term "fiberglass pipe" as described in Section 3 applies to both reinforced thermosetting resin pipe (RTRP) and reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP).
Note 2—Pipe covered by this specification has been found suitable for conveying gases, petroleum products, or corrosive fluids.Note 3—For the purposes of this standard, polymer does not include natural polymers.
1.2 The values given in parentheses are for information only.
Note 4—There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
1.3 The following precautionary 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.
