    Abstract

    This specification covers acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) IPS dimensioned pressure pipe produced by single extrusion in standard thermoplastic pipe dimension ratios and pressure rated for water. It includes criteria for classifying ABS plastic pipe materials and ABS plastic pipe, a system of nomenclature for ABS plastic pipe, and requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, burst pressure, and extrusion quality. Methods of marking are also given. The products covered by this specification are intended for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids, which are chemically compatible with the piping materials. This specification deals with materials and requirements, pipe classification, test methods, retest and rejection, marking, and quality assurance.

    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 acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) IPS dimensioned pressure pipe produced by single extrusion in standard thermoplastic pipe dimension ratios and pressure rated for water (see Appendix X1). Included are criteria for classifying ABS plastic pipe materials and ABS plastic pipe, a system of nomenclature for ABS plastic pipe, and requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, burst pressure, and extrusion quality. Methods of marking are also given.

    1.2 The products covered by this specification are intended for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids, which are chemically compatible with the piping materials. Consult with the manufacturer and local building codes before use in other applications. Due to inherent hazards associated with testing components and systems with compressed air or other compressed gases some manufacturers do not allow pneumatic testing of their products. Consult with specific product/component manufacturers for their specific testing procedures prior to pneumatic testing.

    Note 1Pressurized (compressed) air or other compressed gases contain large amounts of stored energy which present serious safety hazards should a system fail for any reason.
    Note 2Exposure to ultraviolet radiation over a long period of time may affect the physical properties of ABS pipe. Consult the manufacturer for recommendations for handling, storage, and installations that are not protected by insulation.

    1.3 Pipe meeting the requirements of this standard is not compatible with DWV fittings. The ABS pipe covered in this standard is intended for pressure service and it shall be joined to pressure fittings. Non-pressure fittings, such as DWV fittings from any material (ABS, PVC, CPVC, etc.) are not acceptable for pressure applications.

    1.4 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 the specification.

    1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.

    1.6 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, 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.
