Plastic Bathtub and Shower Units
standard by International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, 01/01/2005
This standard covers physical requirements and test methods for performance requirements of materials and workmanship, and finish of plastic bathtub or shower units with or without walls manufactured integral with the bathtub or shower; or as a multi-piece unit distributed as part of the bathtub or shower unit. Such products shall meet the requirements as outlined in this standard. While this standard covers the performance requirements of plastic bathtub or shower units and describes these performance requirements in terms of methods of test applicable to all such units, a number of different materials and methods of manufacture shall be permitted to be used to meet these requirements. Each of these materials and methods have different properties which will affect its end performance and suitability for the intended use. For this reason, portions of the standard are broken into separate requirements designed to identify these individual characteristics. The materials and equipment which are listed as having been used to conduct the testing procedures in this standard are provided solely for informational reference. Materials and equipment of similar design, composition and specification shall only be used to conduct these testing procedures when they produce equivalent results.
