    Abstract

    This specification covers the material, dimensional ,and performance requirements and associated test methods for thermoplastic tubes and fittings for accessible and replaceable domestic waste connections. The tubes, fittings and mechanical joint components shall be made of either virgin acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) plastic, virgin poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) plastic, or virgin polypropylene plastic. When evaluated by the test procedures provided herein, the products shall adhere to requirements stipulated for hydrostatic pressure, axial stress, joint integrity, and solvent cement.

    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 requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions and tolerances, hydrostatic pressure, joint integrity, and solvent cement for thermoplastic tube and fittings for accessible and replaceable domestic waste connections. Marking requirements are also included. Plastic which does not meet the material requirements specified in Section 5 is excluded.

    1.2 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.

    1.3 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 methods portion, Section 8, 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.
