    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers polyethylene (PE) thermoplastic pipelines used to convey, at rated pressures of 80 to 200 psi, water that is to be used for irrigation purposes. This specification includes criteria for classifying the pipe materials, a system of nomenclature for plastic pipe, requirements for pipe, test methods, joints, fittings, certification, and marking.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, this specification was withdrawn in December 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers polyethylene (PE) thermoplastic pipelines used to convey, at rated pressures of 80 to 200 psi, water that is to be used for irrigation purposes. This specification includes criteria for classifying the pipe materials, a system of nomenclature for plastic pipe, requirements for pipe, test methods, joints, fittings, certification, and marking.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.3 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.
