    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This document specifies the properties of piping system components made from glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) based on unsaturated polyester resin (UP). It is suited for all types of water supply, drainage and sewerage with or without pressure. Types of water supply include, but are not limited to, raw water, irrigation, cooling water, potable water, salt water, sea water, penstocks in power plants, processing plants and other water-based applications. This document is applicable to GRP UP piping systems, with flexible or rigid joints with or without end thrust load-bearing capability, primarily intended for use in direct buried installations.

    NOTE1 For the purpose of this document, the term polyester resin (UP) also includes vinyl-ester resins (VE).

    NOTE2 Piping systems conforming to this document can also be used for non-buried applications, provided the influence of the environment and the supports are considered in the design of the pipes, fittings and joints.

    NOTE3 This document can also apply for other installations, such as slip-lining rehabilitation of existing pipes.

    NOTE4 ISO10467 and ISO10639, which are replaced by this document, are also referenced in ISO25780, which specifies requirements for GRP-pipes used for jacking installation.

    The requirements for the hydrostatic pressure design of pipes referring to this document meet the requirements of ISO/TS20656-1 and the general principle for the reliability of structures detailed in ISO2394 and in EN1990. These International Standards provide procedures for the harmonization of design practices and address the probability of failure, as well as possible consequences of failures. The design practices are based on a partial safety factor concept, as well as on risk management engineering.

    This document is applicable to circular pipes, fittings and their joints of nominal sizes from DN50 to DN4000, which are intended to be used for the conveyance of water, sewage and drainage at normal service conditions, with or without pressure.
