    Abstract

    This specification covers coextruded composite pipe, produced by a coextrusion die system, in which the concentric layers are formed and combined before exiting the die. Coextruded composite pipe conforming to the requirements prescribed are used for different applications: IPS Schedule 40 Series-coextruded composite pipe is used for above or below ground installation for communication conduit, electrical conduit, drain, waste, and vent pipe, and plastic underdrain systems for highway, airport, and similar drainage, where a Schedule 40 IPS is required; IPS-DR-PS Series-coextruded composite pipe is used for above or below ground installation for communication conduit, electrical conduit, and drain, waste, and vent pipe; and Sewer and Drain DR-PS Series-coextruded composite pipe is used for gravity flow sewer and drain pipe, and plastic underdrain systems for highway, airport, and similar drainage. The pipe stiffness, impact resistance, and bond strength shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers coextruded composite pipe, produced by a coextrusion die system, in which the concentric layers are formed and combined before exiting the die.

    1.1.1 The function of this specification is to provide standardization of product, to produce technical data, and to serve as a purchasing guide.

    1.2 Compounds that do not meet the requirements of the material section are excluded.

    1.3 The coextruded composite pipe is permitted to be perforated in accordance with any specified standard or by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.

    1.4 The coextruded composite pipe is permitted to be belled for joining by solvent cementing or belled for joining by an elastomeric seal (gaskets), in accordance with any specified standard or by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.

    1.5 Recommendations for storage, joining, installation, and rationale are listed in Appendix X1, Appendix X2, Appendix X3, and Appendix X4, respectively.

    1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.7 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 this specification.

    1.8 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.

    Note 1: Related specifications are as follows: D2661, D2665, D2729, D2750, D2751, D2949, D3034, F512, F628, F758, F789, and F891.
