SCOPE This standard describes protective fusion-bonded coatings for the interior and exterior surfaces of ductile-iron and gray-iron fittings used for raw water, potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water systems. The standard describes the material, application, and performance requirements for these coatings. This standard does not describe coatings agreed on between the purchaser and the manufacturer for special service conditions, such as saltwater, sewers, acid, high temperature, and so forth. MAJOR REVISIONS Major revisions made to the standard in this edition include the following: 1. The standard was revised to incorporate fusion bonded polyolefin coatings and linings in addition to the original fusion bonded epoxy coatings and linings. 2. The scope was expanded to include raw water applications. 3. Definitions were added to Sec. 3 for potable water, raw water, reclaimed water and wastewater to be consistent with Standards Council boilerplate. A new Sec. 4.1.3 Certification was added to include a requirement for NSF/ANSI 61 certification on products if they will be in contact with potable water.
