ASTM-D3035 › Standard Specification for Polyethylene (PE) Plastic Pipe (DR-PR) Based on Controlled Outside Diameter
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers polyethylene (PE) pipes made in thermoplastic pipe dimension ratios based on outside diameter, and pressure rated for water. All pipes produced under this specification may be used for the transport of water, industrial process liquids, effluents, slurries, municipal sewage, etc. Included are criteria for classifying PE plastic pipe materials and PE plastic pipe, and a system of nomenclature for PE plastic pipe. PE pipes shall be evaluated by the test procedures given herein, and shall conform to specified requirements for workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure at ambient and elevated temperatures, hydrostatic burst pressure, tensile strength at yield, and environmental stress cracking.

1.1 This specification covers polyethylene (PE) pipe made in thermoplastic pipe dimension ratios based on outside diameter and pressure rated for water (see ). Included are requirements for polyethylene compounds and PE plastic pipe, a system of nomenclature for PE plastic pipe, and requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained pressure, and burst pressure. Methods of marking are also given.
1.2 All pipes produced under this specification are intended for use as the distribution and transmission of potable and non-potable water, grey water, reclaimed water, wastewater, force main and gravity municipal sewage, etc. The user should consult the manufacturer to determine whether the material being transported is compatible with polyethylene pipe and will not affect the service life beyond limits acceptable to the user.
1.3 The 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.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section , of this specification: This 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.
