This standard applies for round, straight pipes made of polyethylene PE 80 and PE 100 and melt-mass flow rates from nominal 0,2 g/10 min up to 1,4 g/10 min (DIN EN ISO 1872-1, condition T).
This standard is also valid for co-extruded layer pipes with regard to the general quality requirements, provided that all layers are made of materials with the same MRS-classification and the layers are substance-to-substance connected to each other. Additional requirements for the pipes are laid down in the European product standards.
It should be pointed out that European product standards for specific scopes of application are available, which shall be taken into consideration. Some of these European product standards are listed in the bibliography for information. The European standards are subject of a continuous revision, therefore the completeness of the list cannot be guaranteed.
