ASTM WK70493

    New Specification for Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Pipe and Fittings for Drain, Waste , and Vent Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.63 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This specification covers the performance requirements of CPVC pipe, fittings and solvent cements used in drain, waste, and vent systems.


    DWV; fittings; pipe; plastic; CPVC; Schedule 40; thermoplastic


    While CPVC is already used for corrosive waste drainage, the F2618 standard includes requirements not appropriate for DWV systems. CPVC has higher maximum service temperature than PVC. When burned, CPVC generates less smoke tham PVC.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
