It is applicable to GRP-UP piping systems of nominal sizes from DN 100 to DN 3000 which are intended to be used for the conveyance of liquids at temperatures up to 50 °C and at pressures of 0,5 bar and greater.
NOTE 1 Piping systems conforming to prEN 1796 [4] or prEN 14364 [5] can also be used for above-ground applications provided the influence of the environment and the supports is considered in the design of the pipes and joints.
