This specification covers asbestos-cement perforated and plain pipe intended for use in the conveyance of drainage water for the subsurface drainage of highways, airports, farms, foundations, and other similar drainage work. Asbestos-cement underdrain pipe shall be composed of an intimate mixture of portland cement or portland blastfurnace slag cement or portland blast-furnace slag or pozzolan cements and asbestos fiber with or without fine silica or additives containing such silica that is capable of reacting completely to yield calcium silicate reaction products upon autoclaving. The mixture shall not contain more than 0.2 % of nondeleterious organic matter. The material shall be of laminar construction, formed under pressure to a homogeneous structure, and cured to meet the physical and chemical requirements specified. Crushing tests shall be conducted in order to determine the crushing strength of the pipes.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Plumbing Code® and the International Residential Code®.
