ASTM issues new standard

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — ASTM recently issued a new standard, F2618, which details the performance requirements of CPVC pipe, fittings and solvent cements used in chemical waste drainage systems.

Manufacturers producing products to this new specification must meet a number of criteria, including pipe and fittings dimensions; pipe, fitting and solvent cement integrity tests; marking, and minimum chemical resistance requirements for a broad range of cold and hot chemical reagents.

ASTM F2618 makes it possible for consulting engineers to more easily specify CPVC chemical waste systems, such as Charlotte Pipe’s ChemDrain CPVC chemical waste drainage system, for its clients.

ChemDrain is listed by NSF International for chemical waste and bears the mark “NSF-cw”. It is used in research institutions including medical, major universities, government, pharmaceutical and industrial laboratories.
