The development of specifications for plastic pipe, fittings, and appurtenances; practices for joining and installing plastic pipes; test methods; terminology, systems and services specific to plastic piping systems and the stimulation of related research.
The work of the Committee may include the consideration of composite piping systems, and components which are partially plastic.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with ASTM Committee and other organizations having mutual interests.
Industry has developed and the code bodies and installers want to use one-step cements. These make installation faster and, therefore, less expensive. However, a practice does not exist for assembling pipe and fittings with said materials.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
