ASTM WK46502

    Revision of F2805 - 11 Standard Specification for Multilayer Thermoplastic And Flexible Steel Pipe And Connections

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2805 - 16

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.68 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This work item seeks to correct an obvious error in section 4.1. Section 4.1 states in part Polyethylene MaterialsPolyethylene compounds used in the manufacture of these products shall have a minimum cell classication of 444474 in accordance with Specication D2321 (PE4710 as dened in PPI TR-4) or PE100 in accordance with ISO 9080. The reference to ASTM D2321 - Practice for Underground Installation of Thermoplastic Pipe for Sewers and Other Gravity-Flow Applications makes no sense in the context of the sentence. The reference should be to ASTM D3350 - Standard Specication for Polyethylene Plastics Pipe and Fittings Materials. At present D3350 does not appear in the referenced documents and should be added. Also, this is the only place in the document in which ASTM D2321 is referenced and the standard should therefore be removed from the referenced documents. The lack of clarity in the current language could lead to misunderstanding, effectively undermining the intent of the standard.
