Ottawa, IL (June 1, 2016) – In April, the ASTM International committee F17 , Plastic Piping Systems and subcommittee F17.67, Trenchless Plastic Pipeline Technology, voted to renew the ASTM F2561 standard of practice an additional five years. ASTM F2561 was first published in 2006, first renewed in 2011 and now again in 2016.
ASTM F2561-16 is the standard practice for rehabilitation of a sewer service lateral and its connection to the main using a one piece main and lateral cured in place liner. The practice covers the requirements and test methods for the reconstruction without excavation. The lateral pipe is accessed remotely from the main pipe and from a lateral cleanout, if available. A resin impregnated one-piece main and lateral CIPP lining is installed by the use of air and inversion. The CIPP liner is pressed against the host pipe by pressurizing a bladder and is held in place until the thermoset resin has cured.
