Specifies the performance requirements for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) compounds (ABS 120, ABS 140 and ABS 160), pipes and fittings for the conveyance of liquids under pressure in applications above and below ground.

This Standard specifies the performance requirements for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) compounds (ABS 120, ABS 140 and ABS 160), pipes and fittings for the conveyance of liquids under pressure in applications above and below ground. The Standard contains dimensions for three ranges of pipe sizes, Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3.Series 1 and 3 pipes are compatible with ISO 161 size series diameters, Series 2 are cast iron compatible sizes in accordance with AS/NZS 2280. NOTE: Pipes and fittings manufactured to this Standard should be used and installed only in accordance with AS 3690, AS/NZS 2566.2 and AS 4041, as applicable.Methods of demonstrating compliance with this Standard are given in Appendix A.
