This specification covers requirements and test methods for fabricated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) plastic schedule 40 drainage and DWV fittings. These fabricated fittings are manufactured from pipe, or from a combination of pipe and injection molded parts. Resistance to bending test, leak test, and solvent weld bond area test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed. The spigot diameter, spigot length, wall thickness, socket diameter, and socket length 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.
1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for fabricated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) plastic schedule 40 drainage and DWV fittings to be used with piping manufactured in accordance with Specification D 2665, D 1785, or F 891. These fabricated fittings are manufactured from pipe, or from a combination of pipe and injection molded parts.
1.2 The requirements of this specification are to provide fabricated PVC fittings suitable for drainage and venting of sanitary waste systems, storm water systems, and certain other liquid wastes. Fittings shall have solvent cement joints, gasket joints or a combination thereof.
1.3 The text of this specification references notes, footnotes, and appendixes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 10, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
