    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers fittings and single and coextruded acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) plastic drain, waste, and vent pipe (DWV) made to Schedule 40 iron pipe sizes (IPS). Plastic which does not meet the material requirements specified in Section 5 is excluded from single layer and all coextruded layers.

    1.2 Specification for fittings for use with pipe meeting the requirements of this specification are given in Annex A1.

    1.3 Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene plastic, which does not meet the definition of virgin ABS plastic as given in 3.2.2, is excluded, as performance of plastic other than those defined as virgin was not determined. ABS rework plastic, which meets the requirements of rework plastic as given in 5.3, is acceptable.

    1.4 Reprocessed plastic or recycled plastic as defined in Terminology D883 is excluded.

    1.5 Recommendations for storage, joining, and installation are provided in Appendixes X1, Appendix X2, and Appendix X3, respectively.

    1.6 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.

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