This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, chemical resistance, and joint tightness of poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) sewer and drain pipe and fittings. The pipe shall be made from virgin cell 12164 with a certain minimum tensile strength, 12454 or 12454 poly(vinyl chloride) compounds. The fittings shall be made from virgin poly(vinyl chloride) compounds of cell classification PVC 12454, PVC 12454, or PVC 13343. Compounds that have different cell classification because one or more properties are superior to those of the specified compounds are also acceptable. In order to determine the overall performance of the pipes and fittings, the following tests shall be done: flattening test, joint tightness test, and perforation test. The pipe and fittings shall be homogeneous throughout and free from visible cracks, holes, foreign inclusions, or other injurious defects. The pipe shall be as uniform as commercially practical in color, opacity, density, and other physical properties.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Plumbing Code®, International Private Sewage Disposal Code®, and International Residential Code®..
