Abstract

This specification covers the requirements and related test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, chemical resistance, and joint tightness of sewer and drain pipes made from either virgin or recycled poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) compound. This specification also covers four-inch perforated pipes, but the joint tightness test is not applicable for this product. The pipes shall also be tested and thereby conform accordingly to the requirements for flattening resistance, extrusion quality, impact strength and resistance, stiffness, solvent cement, and perforations.
