    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification covers billets made from stress-rated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) materials.

    1.2The billets are manufactured by application of molten extruded material onto a rotating mandrel to form a monolithic mass. Removal of the mandrel provides a billet in the approximate shape of a thick-walled cylindrical shell. Machining prior to dimensioning is acceptable.

    Note 1:Although it is impossible to address all manufacturing details related to the fabrication of billets in this specification, successful heat fusion bonding of HDPE is obtained through controlled application of sufficient heat to cause melting in combination with applied force over a period of time.

    1.3The billets are intended for fabrication into pipe fittings such as flange adapters and reducers.

    1.4Requirements for and use of the fabricated pipe fittings shall be in accordance with an applicable product specification. This specification for billets does not include requirements for items fabricated from the billets.

    1.5This specification includes thermoplastic pipe material designation codes for selection of appropriate stress-rated material, together with performance requirements for billets and test methods for determining conformance with the requirements.

    1.6Minimum quality control measures are prescribed for manufacturers. See Annex A1 for quality control for billets conforming to this specification.

    1.7The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.8This 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.
