This specification covers manufacturing and joining requirements for peelable or skinned polyethylene (PE) pipe, which is PE pipe meeting the requirements of Specification D2513, with a peelable outer layer of polypropylene (PP). The peelable PP layer does not contribute to outside diameter and wall thickness used for pressure rating or tensile loading calculations.
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 standard specification covers manufacturing and joining requirements for peelable (skinned) polyethylene (PE) pipe, which is PE pipe meeting the requirements of Specification D2513, with a peelable outer layer of polypropylene (PP). These requirements are in addition to those in Specification D2513 for the PE pipe.
1.2 The peelable PP layer does not contribute to outside diameter and wall thickness used for pressure rating or tensile loading calculations.
1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in figures and tables) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
1.4 Units—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.
1.5 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.
