ASTM WK75555

    Revision of F493 - 20 Standard Specification for Solvent Cements for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Pipe and Fittings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F493 - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.20 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK75555


    Keywords

    cement; CPVC; solvent cement;;

    Rationale

    Assembly procedures for joint preparation in F493 are incorrect and should read like the joint preparation found in D2846. Long Term testing in D2846 and F493 share all details except cure schedule. D2846 says to follow the cement manufacturers recommendations whereas F493 provides for a very restrictive and questionable cure schedule.
