1.1 This specification covers machine-made fibreglass pipe,
8 in. (200 mm) through 144 in. (3700 mm), intended for use in
water conveyance systems which operate at internal gage
pressures of 250 psi (1.72 MPa) or less. Both glass-fibre-reinforced thermosetting-resin pipe (RTRP) and glass-fibre-reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP) are fibreglass pipes.
The standard is suited primarily for pipes to be installed in
buried applications, although it may be used to the extent
applicable for other installations such as, but not limited to,
jacking, tunnel lining and slip lining rehabilitation of existing
