The data obtained for short-term tests are of interest only in eliminating the most unsuitable materials or for indicating a probable order of resistance in any particular media.
Test conditions should take into account the manner and duration of immersion, the reagent, the temperature of the system, the area exposed above and below the liquid level, and other performance factors selected for the particular test.
1.1 This test method is intended for evaluating the resistance of pipe coating materials when exposed to various concentrations of reagents or suspected soil contaminants. The test serves as a guide to investigators wishing to compare the relative merits of pipe-coating materials in specific environments. The choice of reagents, concentrations, duration of immersion, temperature of test, and properties to be reported are necessarily arbitrary and should be chosen to reflect conditions known to exist along the pipeline right-of-way.
