This specification covers the classifications of and basic requirements for thermosetting fiberglass reinforced resin pipe systems with nominal pipe sizes (NPS) 1 through 48 in. (25 through 1200 mm) which are to be used for all fluids approved by the authority having jurisdiction in marine piping systems. The piping system shall adhere to specified requirements such as internal and external pressure, fire endurance, flame spread, smoke and other toxic products of combustion, temperature, material compatibility, electrical resistance, static charge shielding, potable water usage, glass content, and wall thickness.
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 reinforced thermosetting resin pipe systems with nominal pipe sizes (NPS) 1 through 48 in. (25 through 1200 mm) which are to be used for all fluids approved by the authority having jurisdiction in marine piping systems.
1.2 The dimensionless designator NPS has been substituted for traditional terms as “nominal diameter,” “size,” and “nominal size.”
1.3 Values stated in inch-pound are to be regarded as the standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains to the test methods which are included in 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.
