A common element shared by all standards is the need for a pipe manufacturer to demonstrate compliance with the standards’ minimum performance requirements. In the case of GRP-pipes, these minimum performance requirements fall into both short-term and long-term requirements. The most important of these, and generally specified at the same level of performance in all the previously defined standards is joint, initial ring deflection, long-term ring bending, long-term pressure and strain corrosion capability.

FLOWTITE pipes have been rigorously tested to verify conformance to the ASTM D3262, ASTM D3517, AWWA C950 and DIN 16868 requirements.
