IAPMO (File No. 2128) - Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) - Vinyltech sewer pipe is IAPMO listed for ASTM 3034 SDR 35 4-15 inch and SDR 26 4-12 inch.
The pipe shall be extruded from compounds meeting the requirements of Cell Classification 12454-B, as defined in ASTM D 1784, Standard Specification for Rigid Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Compounds and Chlorinated Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Compounds.
Vinyltech and Northern Pipe Products pipe shall be manufactured in accordance with ASTM D 3034 (4"-15") and ASTM F 679 18"-24".
The gasket shall be reinforced with a steel ring and meet the requirements of ASTM F477. Vinyltech pipe shall have an integral bell end with a locked-in factory installed gasket and shall meet the requirements of ASTM D 3212.
The pipe shall be marked in accordance with ASTM D 3034 and F 679.
Requirements for manufacturing and testing are conducted in strict accordance with ASTM specifications and are outlined in ASTM D 3034 and F 679.
Recommended installation procedure of Vinyltech Corporation and the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association are outlined in ASTM D 2321, Underground Installation of Flexible Thermoplastic Sewer Pipe. Vinyltech recommends the Uni-Bell Handbook of PVC Pipe as an invaluable resource guide.
ASSEMBLING THE PIPE
Assembling of Vinyltech PVC Sewer Pipe is easily accomplished by hand or by using a bar and block. A depth of entry mark is on each spigot end to serve as a visual check for rapid, accurate joint inspection. Do not over insert.
Remove any mud, sand, or other foreign matter from the belled and spigot ends of the pipe. Carefully clean the gasket area.
With a clean applicator (a brush or hand) lubricate the entire surface of the pipe from the spigot end to the depth of entry mark and the contact surface of the gasket with Vinyltech Brand Lubricant.
Brace the bell to avoid disturbing the already installed joints. Align the pipe, insert the spigot into the bell and push until the entry mark is reached. Do not insert past the entry mark line.
