This specification covers machine-made fiberglass pipe, 8 in. (200 mm) through 144 in. (3700 mm), intended for use in water conveyance systems which operate at internal gage pressures of 250 psi (1.72 MPa) or less. Both glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin pipe (RTRP) and glass-fiber-reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP) are fiberglass pipes. The standard is suited primarily for pipes to be installed in buried applications, although it may be used to the extent applicable for other installations such as, but not limited to, jacking, tunnel lining and sliplining rehabilitation of existing pipelines.
NOTE 1 - For the purposes of this standard, polymer does not include natural polymers.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
NOTE 2 - There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 8, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
