1.1 This test method determines the resistance to slow crack growth of polyethylene pipe expressed in terms of time to failure of the pipe with machined axial notches in a hydrostatic stress rupture test.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 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--A similiar test method is described in ISO 13479.
