AASHTO M 304:2015 Standard Specification for Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Profile Wall Drain Pipe and Fittings Based on ControlledI nside Diameter.
1.1. This specification covers poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) profile wall perfbrated and nonperforated pipe and fittings, 100 to 1200 mm (4 to 48 in.) nominal inside diameter, for use in nonpressure storm drains. culverts, underdrains. and other subsurface drainage systems providing either soiltight or watertight joints.
1.2. Industrial waste disposal lines should he installed only with the specific approval of the governing code authority since chemicals not commonly found in drains and temperatures in excess of 60°C (140°F) may be encountered.
1.3. Pipe and fittings produced to this specification should be installed in accordance with ASTM D2321 and the manufacturer’s recommendation.
1 .4. Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Within the text, the U.S. Customary units arc shown in parentheses for informational purposes, and may not be exact equivalents.
4.1. Orders— Orders for materials to this specification shall include the fbllowing information as necessary to adequately describe the desired product:
4.1.1. Name of material (PVC ribbed drain pipe):
4.1.2. AASHTO designation, including year;
4.1.3. Perforations, when perforations are required:
4.1.4. Diameter of pipe;
4.1.5. Length, either total length or length of each piece and number of pieces; and
4.1.6. Special requirements.
5.1. Basic Materials—The pipe, internal sleeves, and fittings shall be made of PVC plastic having a minimum cell classification of 12454C or 12364C as defined in ASTM D1784. Homopolymer PVC compounds must meet or exceed the requirements of the above listed minimum cell classification number.
5.2. Reworked Material—Clean reworked material generated from the manufacturer’s own production, when used by the manufacturer, shall meet the requirements for minimum cell classification as described in Section 5.1.
5.3. Gaskets—Elastoineric gaskets shall comply with low head-application requirements described in
ASTM F477.
5.4. Lubricant—The lubricant used for assembly shall have no detrimental effect on the gasket or on the pipe. Only lubricant recommended by the manufacturer shall be used.
6.1. Joint Tipes—Joints may consist of bells, external sleeves. internal sleeves, or band couplers.
6.2. Joint classifications—–Joints shall be classified as soiltight or watertight. Soiltight joints must meet the requirements of Section 7.6. Watertight joints must meet the requirements of Section 7.7.
Note I —The outside diameters of products of different manufacturers are not specified and therefore compatibility should be reviewed.AASHTO M 304 pdf download.
