ICC-ES Breaks New Ground Listing Polypropylene and Polyethylene Pipes and Fittings for DWV Applications to New ASTM F3371 Standard

Listings to New Standard Helps Polyolefin Manufacturers be More Competitive      

                

Brea, Calif. – ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), the experts in product evaluation and certification, is now listing non-pressure polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene (PE) pipes and fittings for use in drainage, waste and vent (DWV) applications to the new ASTM Standard, F3371.  Prior to the availability of this new standard, such manufacturers needed to comply with ASTM F1412 for corrosive waste. 

“Being able to be listed to this new standard specifically devoted to DWV applications gives these manufacturers a clearer path to market allowing them to be more competitive,” said Dawn La Fleur-Qualley, ICC-ES PMG Program Director.  “ICC-ES, the trusted source for plumbing, mechanical and gas product evaluations and listings, strives to stay at the forefront of industry needs and support innovation by quickly offering certifications to new standards such as ASTM F3371.”

The ICC-ES PMG Products Listing Program provides manufacturers a way to indicate to code officials, designers and specifiers that products comply with applicable codes and consensus standards used in the built environment. Manufacturers with ICC-ES listings can go to jurisdictions throughout the U.S. and have confidence their products will be readily approved by code officials.
