ASTM D3517: Standard Specification for “Fiberglass” (Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Thermosetting-Resin) Pressure Pipe
SDO: ASTM: ASTM International
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This specification covers machine-made fiberglass pipe, 8 in. (200 mm) through 156 in. (4000 mm), intended for use in water conveyance systems which operate at internal gage pressures of 450 psi (3103 kPa) or less. Both glass-fiberreinforced thermosetting-resin pipe (RTRP) and glass-fiberreinforced 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 slip-lining 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 known ISO equivalent to this 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. 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.
