Plastic pipes, fittings, and plastic valves that do not have built-in
protection from Ultraviolet (UV) light (exposed to sunlight) shall be
A13 shielded by painting with an exterior-grade, water-based emulsion, or
tapewrap with UV resistant pressure sensitive tape utilizing adhesive that

Flange adapters with metal back-up flanges may be used for mechanical
joining HDPE pipe to other piping materials, valves, tanks, pumps and
other equipment. Such flange adapters shall be heat fused to the pipe

Cut the pipe square, using a tubing cutter or a fine-toothed hand saw and
miter box. (ASTM F 493 Para X1.1)
All ridges caused by tube cutter and burrs with sandpaper or knife shall
be removed. (ASTM F 493 Para. X1.2)
Check dry fit of pipe in the fittings to ensure that there is an interference
fit. The dry pipe or tubing should enter the fitting socket from one third to
two thirds of the full socket depth when assembled by hand. (ASTM F
493 Para. X1.3)
Pipe end fitting socket shall be cleaned. Wipe away dust, moisture, and
foreign material with dry cloth or use a cleaner, or primer or sand with
fine abrasive paper. Cleaner or primer shall be that recommended by
the cement manufacturer for use with CPVC plastic pipe.
(ASTM F 493 X1.4 )
Heavy thick coat of CPVC cement to the pipe end and a light thin coat to
the inside of the fitting socket shall be applied. If cement dries on either
surface before joining, apply another coat. (ASTM F 493 Para X1.5)
Immediately insert the pipe into the fitting worth a slight twisting motion
until it bottoms in the socket. Quickly align fitting direction. Hold the joint
together momentarily until cement has set. Remove excess cement
from the joint. (ASTM F 493 Para X1.6)
After the joint has been made, the piping shall not be moved until the
drying time listed in table shown at the end of this Check list, has
elapsed
Assembly of PVC Piping
Cut pipe square with the axis, using a fine tooth hand saw and a mixer
box, or a fine tooth power saw with a suitable guide. Rotary cutter may
be used if the cutting blades are specifically designed for cutting plastic
pipe in such a way as not to raise a burr or ridge at the cut end of the
pipe. Standard rotary metal pipe cutter may be used provided that all the
ridge raised at the pipe end by the wedging action of the cutting wheels
would be removed. (ASTM D 2855 Para 7.1)

Note: When the pipe and fittings are at their tolerance extremes or when
schedule 80 pipe is used, it may be possible fully insert the dry pipe into
the socket until it bottoms. If this occurs, the fit between the fitting
should be snug.
Surfaces to be joined shall be cleaned and be free of dirt, moisture, oil
and other foreign material (ASTM D 2855 Para 7.4)
Apply the cement with the natural bristle, nylon brush or suitable
applicator. Using a 1/2-in brush or dauber for nominal pipe size 1/2 in
and less, a 1-in brush or dauber for pipe up through 2-in nominal pipe
size and a brush width at least 1/23 of nominal pipe size for above 2 in,
except that for pipe sizes 6 in. and larger a 2-1/2 in brush is adequate.
(ASTM D 2855 Para 7.5.2)
Apply primer to inside socket surface. Applicator or brush sizes shall be
as specified in Item 20 of this check list. (ASTM D 2855 Para 7.5.3.1)

Immediately after applying the last coat of cement to the pipe, and while
both the inside socket surface and the outside surface of male end of the
pipe are SOFT and WET with solvent cement, forcefully bottom the male
end of the pipe in the socket. Turn the pipe or fitting 1/4 during assembly
(but not after the pipe is bottomed) to distribute the cement evenly
