    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the time-to-failure of plastic piping products under constant internal pressure and flow.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, this test method was withdrawn in February 2018. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the time-to-failure of plastic piping products under constant internal pressure and flow.

    1.2 This test method provides a method of characterizing plastics in the form of pipe, components, and systems under any reasonable combination of internal and external temperatures and environments, under the procedures described.

    1.3 This test method can be used to characterize the tested plastic materials or products, or both, on the basis of pressure-, or stress-rupture data developed under the conditions prescribed.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.5 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.
