    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.26 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes practices required to prevent contamination of polyethylene pipe and fittings during manufacturing. This practice applies from the receipt of feedstocks through part production. This practice does not address feedstocks received in liquid form. 1.2 This practice does not address the design or function of the polyethylene pipe or fittings. 1.3 Units--The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.4 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.

    This practice can be used by manufacturers to set practices. This practice can also be adopted by other ASTM product standards and purchasing and specifying entities such as industry and government.
