    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for oriented PVC (OPVC) pipe for pressure applications for use below ground and above ground where not exposed to direct sunlight, and for operational temperatures below 50 degrees Celsius.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for oriented PVC (OPVC) pipe for pressure applications for use below ground, above ground where not exposed to direct sunlight, and for operational temperatures below 50 C.OPVC pipes in accordance with this Standard are intended for elastomeric ring jointing by integral sockets or by separate couplings. Solvent cement joints are not a specified jointing method for OPVC pipes.OPVC pipe manufactured to this Standard should be used and installed only in accordance with AS 2032 and AS 2566.
