This specification covers "fiberglass" (glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin) pressure pipe fittings for use with filament wound or centrifugally cast fiberglass pipe. The fibreglass fittings are defined by type, grade, class, category, and pressure rating: type 1 - filament-wound fittings, type 2 - compression moulded fittings, type 3 - resin transfer molded fittings, type 4 - centrifugally cast fittings, and type 5 - contact molded fittings; grade 1 - epoxy-resin, grade 2 - polyester-resin, grade 3 - phenolic-resin, grade 4 - vinylester resin, and grade 7 - furan resin; class A - no liner, class B - polyester-resin liner (nonreinforced), class C - epoxy-resin liner (nonreinforced), class D - phenolic resin liner (nonreinforced), class E - polyester-resin liner (reinforced), class F - epoxy-resin liner (reinforced), class G - phenolic resin liner, class H - thermoplastic-resin liner, class I - furan-resin liner (reinforced), class J - vinylester resin liner (nonreinforced), and class K - vinylester resin liner (reinforced); category 1 - taper-to-taper adhesive bonded joint fittings, category 2 - straight-taper adhesive-bonded joint fitting, category 3 - straight adhesive bonded joint fitting, category 5 - flanged fittings, category 6 - elastomeric sealed joints with sealant, and category 7 - elastomeric sealed joints with seals. Short-term hydrostatic strength test and cyclic or static pressure test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed.
1.1 This specification covers “fiberglass” (glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin) fittings for use with filament wound or centrifugally cast fiberglass pipe, or both, in sizes 1 in. through 24 in. for pipe manufactured to Specification or , or both.
1.2 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.
1.3 The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section , of this specification:
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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Note 1: The term “fiberglass pipe” as described in Section of this specification applies to both reinforced thermosetting resin pipe (RTRP) and reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP).
Note 2: For the purposes of this standard, polymer does not include natural polymers.
Note 3: There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
