This specification covers requirements, test methods, and methods of marking for polybutylene plastic system components. These components comprise pipe and tubing, socket-fusion fittings, compression fittings, mechanical fittings, and plastic-to-metal transition fittings. The components covered by this specification are intended for use in hot- and cold-water potable water service and distribution systems and such non-potable water applications. The components are classified as follows: pipe, tubing, and socket-fusion fittings; plastic-to-metal transition fittings; and compression and mechanical plastic fittings. The following tests shall be performed: sustained hydrostatic pressure; thermocycling; hydrostatic burst strength; assembly; excessive temperature and pressure capability of tubing and pipe; and elongation value at break.

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