Description / Abstract:

This specification covers asbestos-cement pressure pipe for use in supply lines and distribution systems that carry water under pressure. The specification also covers asbestos-cement pressure pipe for use in sewer force mains which carry sewage under pressure.

The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. Those notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are for information only.

Warning - Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestos-cement products, minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysotile asbestos, refer to "Safe Use of Chrysotile: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures."(Footnote 2)

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
