    Revision of F412 - 13 Standard Terminology Relating to Plastic Piping Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F412 - 17a

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.91 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The scope of this project is limited to Revise the number of letters used to abbreviate stress-rated compound in the definition of code, thermoplastic pipe materials designation. Recent changes in some ASTM standards utilize a four letter abbreviation for plastic materials. The use a four letter abbreviation is inconsistent with the definition provided in ASTM F412 which states code, thermoplastic pipe materials designation letters and ciphers for the designation of stress-rated thermoplastic compound, which consists of two or three letters to indicate the abbreviation as listed in Terminology D1600, for the type of thermoplastic resinfollowed by four Arabic numerals two to describe the short-term properties, in accordance with the ASTM standard being referenced, and two to designate the hydrostatic design stress when tested in water at 73F (23C) in units of 100 psi, with any decimal figures dropped.
