Revision of F2023-15 Standard Test Method for Evaluating the Oxidative Resistance of Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) Pipe, Tubing and Systems to Hot Chlorinated Water


Standard F2023 currently does not control for the concentration of dissolved oxygen, metallic species (specifically Copper, but may include others), and the oxidation potential of the chlorinated species. Variation in these parameters may result in increased scatter in the results. This ballot revision will explore added the requirement to control for these experimental variables
