ISO 15874-2:2013 specifies the requirements of pipes made from polypropylene (PP) 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) and for heating systems under operating pressures and temperatures appropriate to the class of application.
It covers a range of service conditions (application classes), design pressures and pipe dimension classes.
It also specifies test parameters for test methods.
In conjunction with the other parts of ISO 15874, ISO 15874-2:2013 is applicable to PP pipes, their joints and to joints with components of PP, other plastics and non-plastics materials intended to be used for hot and cold water installations.
It is applicable to pipes with or without (a) barrier layer(s).
