    Abstract

    This specification covers the dimensional, design, and performance requirements for five types (Types EB-20, EB-35, DB-60, DB-100, and DB-120) of smooth-wall poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) conduits and fittings for underground communication and electrical power wires and cables. Conduits and fittings shall be evaluated on impact resistance and strength, joint tightness, pipe stiffness, and extrusion quality.

    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 the requirements for single wall and coextruded cellular core smooth-wall poly(vinyl chloride) conduit and fittings for underground communication and electrical power wire and cables. Plastics which does not meet the material requirements specified in Section 5 is excluded from single layer and all coextruded layers.

    1.2 The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method 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.
