ISO 25780:2011 specifies the properties of the piping system and its components made from glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) based on unsaturated polyester resin (UP) for water supply, irrigation, drainage or sewerage systems with or without pressure.
ISO 25780:2011 is applicable to GRP-UP piping systems, with flexible joints, intended to be installed using jacking techniques. It specifies the characteristics of pipes made from GRP-UP, with or without aggregates or fillers and also specifies the test parameters for the test methods referred to in ISO 25780:2011.
ISO 25780:2011 is applicable to pipes and joints with a size range from DN100 to DN4000 which are intended to be used for the conveyance of water or sewage at temperatures up to 50ºC, with or without pressure.
ISO 25780:2011 covers requirements to improve the design of the joint and specifies type test performance requirements for the joints as a function of the declared nominal pressure rating of the pipeline system and the required joint deflection capability of the system.
