Note: Additional grades and materials available upon request.
ASTM D1785 – This specification covers poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) plastic pipe, schedules 40, 80, and 120 for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids only. This specification also includes classification criteria, nomenclature system, test methods, requirements, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, burst pressure, flattening, extrusion quality, finish, appearance, and marking methods for PVC plastic pipe. PVC pipe covered are marked with one of six type/grade/design stress designation and defined by four hydrostatic design stresses. PVC plastics are categorized by short-term and long term-strength tests.
ASTM D2466 – This specification covers poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) Schedule 40 pipe fittings made from four PVC plastic compounds and intended for use with Iron Pipe Size (IPS) outside-diameter plastic pipe. Fittings fabricated by welding are not included in this specification. Included are requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions, and burst pressure. The products covered by this specification are intended for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids only, which are chemically compatible with the piping materials.
ASTM D2672 – This specification covers requirements, testing, and performance characteristics of joints for IPS PVC pipe using solvent cement. Testing requirements for both pressure and non-pressure pipe shall include socket dimensions, burst pressure, and joint tightness tests. PVC plastics, solvent cements, primer materials, workmanship, sampling, conditioning, marking, and quality shall conform to the requirements of this specification.
ASTM D2837 – The procedure for estimating long-term hydrostatic strength or pressure-strength is essentially an extrapolation with respect to time of a stress-time or pressure-time regression line based on data obtained in accordance with Test Method D1598. Stress or pressure-failure time plots are obtained for the selected temperature and environment: the extrapolation is made in such a manner that the long-term hydrostatic strength or pressure strength is estimated for these conditions.
ASTM D2122 – This test method covers the determination of diameter, wall thickness, and length dimensions of thermoplastic pipe. Included are procedures for measurement of the inside diameter of pipe intended to be joined by internal fittings, measurement of the average outside diameter for roundable pipe where out-of-roundness is not of primary concern, out-of-roundness measurement and measurement of the average outside diameter of non-roundable pipe, and for determining length and straightness.
