1.1 This specification covers polyamide- 12 electrofusion fittings for use with outside diameter-controlled polyamide- 12 pipe, covered by Specification F2785. Requirements for materials, workmanship, and testing performance are included. Where applicable in this specification “pipe” shall mean “pipe” or “tubing.”
1.2 Polyamide 12 electrofusion fittings are intended for use in polyamide 12 systems only. As per the manufacturer’s recommendations, no cross fusion between PA12, PA11 and PE is permitted.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 9, 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.
