ISO 10639:2004

Plastics piping systems for pressure and non-pressure water supply -- Glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) systems based on unsaturated polyester (UP) resin

ISO 10639:2004 specifies the properties of piping system components made from glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) based on unsaturated polyester resin (UP) for water supply with or without pressure, as well as the properties of the system itself.

It is applicable to GRP-UP piping systems, with flexible or rigid joints with or without end thrust load-bearing capability, primarily intended for use in buried installations.

It is applicable to pipes, fittings and their joints of nominal sizes from DN 50 to DN 4000 which are intended to be used for the conveyance of water at temperatures up to 50 °C, with or without pressure. In a pipework system, pipes and fittings of different nominal pressure and stiffness ratings may be used together.
