Revision of D2837-13e1 Standard Test Method for Obtaining Hydrostatic Design Basis for Thermoplastic Pipe Materials or Pressure Design Basis for Thermoplastic Pipe Products


None Provided


This project is to add 1400 or 1425 psi HDB and PDB categories into tables 1 & 2. There are a large number of products in the marketplace that have either a 1250 psi or 1600 psi HDB/PDB. The gap between these two categories is wide especially when compared to the gap between 1600 psi an 1800 psi HDB/PDB categories. A 1400 psi category will allow for and foster innovation in the market. The new HDB/PDB categories will not result in inaccurate data or misrepresentation of data, so there is no anticipated risk to users from the introduction of the new categories.
