Plastics pipes (ICS 23.040.20)
Ministerial Decree No.1095/2019 (2 pages, in Arabic) mandating the Egyptian Standard ES 8228 "Fiberglass (Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Thermosetting-Resin) Pressure Pipe". (17 page(s), in English)
The Ministerial Decree No.1095/2019 gives the producers and importers a six-month transitional period to abide by the Egyptian standard ES 8228 which covers machine-made fiber glass pipe, 8 in. (200 mm) through 156 in. (4000 mm), intended for use in water conveyance systems which operate at internal gage pressures of 450 psi (3103 kPa) or less. Both glass-fiber-reinforced thermosetting-resin pipe (RTRP) and glass-fiber-reinforced polymer mortar pipe (RPMP) are fiber glass pipes. The standard is suited primarily for pipes to be installed in buried applications, although it may be used to the extent applicable for other installations such as, but not limited to, jacking, tunnel lining and slip-lining rehabilitation of existing pipelines. Worth mentioning is that this standard adopts the technical content of ASTM D3517 – 19.
