This Part of EN ISO 15877 specifies the characteristics of fittings made from chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVCC) 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 according to the class of application (see Table 1 of EN ISO 15877-1:2003).
This standard covers a range of service conditions (application classes) and design pressure classes. For values of TD, Tmax and Tmal in excess of those in Table 1of Part 1, this standard does not apply.
NOTE 1 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 parameters for the test methods referred to in this standard.
In conjunction with the other Parts of EN ISO 15877:2003 (see Foreword) it is applicable to PVC-C fittings, 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.
This standard is applicable to fittings of the following types:
-- fittings for solvent cement joints;
-- mechanical fittings;
-- fittings with incorporated inserts.
NOTE 2 Fittings made from PVC-C are manufactured by injection-moulding.
