This Part of EN ISO 15877:2003 specifies the requirements of pipes made from chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-C) for piping systems intended to be used for hot and cold water installations within buildings for the conveyance of water, whether or not intended for human consumption (domestic systems), under design pressures and temperatures appropriate to the class of application (see Table 1 of EN ISO 15877-1:2003).
This standard covers a range of service conditions (application classes), design pressures and pipe series. For values of TD, Tmax and Tmal in excess of those in Table 1of Part 1, this standard does not apply.
NOTE It is the responsibility of the purchaser or specifier to make the appropriate selections from these aspects, taking into account their particular requirements and any relevant national regulations and installation practices or codes.
It also specifies the test parameters for the test methods referred to in this standard.
In conjunction with the other Parts of EN ISO 15877 (see Foreword) it is applicable to PVC-C pipes, their joints and to joints with components of PVC-C, other plastics and non-plastics materials intended to be used for hot and cold water installations.
