International Standard ISO 1628-2:1998 Plastics-Determination of the Viscosity of Polymers in Dilute Solution Using Capillary Viscometers 1998 - Australian Government

Description

You may be required to comply with this code if you intend to import goods into Australia, and wish to apply for a tariff concession order. A tariff concession order allows you to import goods free of duty. It is available where there are no substitutable goods produced in Australia.

A tariff concession order may be available in respect of goods, other than S-PVC, which have the following characteristics:

  • A mean granular size of at least 100 microns, and at most 200 microns;
  • 95% by volume having a granular size of at least 50 microns and at most 300 microns; and
  • A K value of at least 55 and at most 80, as determined according to this Standard.

This standard is referred to in the Catalogue of Australian Standards as ISO 1628-2:1998 Plastics-Determination of the viscosity of polymers in dilute solution using capillary viscometers-Part 2: Poly (vinyl chloride) resins. It specifies the general aspects of pipes and joints made of oriented unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC-O) for piping systems intended to be used underground or above-ground where not exposed to direct sunlight, for water mains and services, for pressurized sewer systems and for irrigation systems.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
