ASTM D3262

Standard ASTM D3262
Specification for “Fiberglass” (Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Thermosetting-Resin) Sewer Pipe

Glass-fiber is a strong and stable material perfect for manufacturing sewer pipe. In order to establish specific requirements in this regard, ASTM International developed standard ASTM D3262. This standard covers machine-made fiberglass pipe, 200 mm [8 in.] to 4000 mm [156 in.], intended for use in gravity-flow systems for conveying sanitary sewage, storm water, and some industrial wastes.

BNQ certification of glass-fiber-reinforced and thermosetting-resin sewer pipe for application under pressure to ASTM D3262 enables manufacturers to confirm the quality of their products for the benefit of clients. This means that clients are not required to inspect the companies, reassured by the knowledge that third-party certification guarantees an impartial process. Manufacturers interested in obtaining recognition that their pipe conforms to ASTM D3262 must submit a certification application to the BNQ and show that they meet the requirements of the BNQ certification program.

General Requirements:

  • classification;
  • materials and fabrication;
  • wall composition;
  • lining and surface layer;
