  1. PVC dimensions (minimum wall thickness and outside diameter) are per the following standards:

  2. PVC safe pull stress of 7,000 PSI is based on the minimum cell classification value of 7,000 PSI for short term tensile strength [ASTM D1784] and a safety factor of 2.5.
  3. PVC safe pull forces are based on minimum wall thickness and the safe pull stresses as given per Note 2.
  4. PVC weights are based on an average of the extruder's recorded weights, or estimated using average wall thickness and density of PVC at 73° F.
  5. Maximum Working Pressures are per the standard that the pipe is produced to, at 73° F [see note 1 above].
  6. Critical Buckling Pressures are calculated using the Modulus of Elasticity (400,000 PSI for PVC), and published Poisson's Ratio for the given material [Unibell Handbook of PVC, 4th Edition]. No safety factor is included in the calculation for Critical Buckling Pressures for PVC.
  7. Bend Radius calculations are based on the assumption that a fitting or flange is present/to be installed in the bend. The Bend Radius for PVC is calculated using 250 times the outside diameter of the pipe, which is based on a axial tensile stress due to bending of 800 PSI and which includes a safety factor of 2.5 compared to long term stress capacity [Unibell Handbook of PVC, 4th Edition].
