    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, and markings for on-site manufactured multilayer reinforced polyethylene composite pipe. It covers nominal sizes 6 in. through 36 in. (150 mm through 915 mm). These multilayered reinforced polyethylene composite pipe products are assembled and installed in various lengths, including long continuous lengths. These products are intended for the transport of crude oil, natural gas and hazardous liquids in the rehabilitation of existing pipelines and for new pipelines.

    Note 1—Hazardous liquids are those liquids defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation in 49 CFR 195.2.

    1.2 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.

    1.3 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.
