Global Engineering Documents and NEMA Announce the Release of the Polyvinyl-Chloride Coated Rigid Steel and Intermediate Metal Conduit Standard.

ROSSLYN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 2, 1999--

NEMA, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, in cooperation with Global Engineering Documents, the world's leading distributor of industry, U.S. and international standards, announces the release of NEMA's revised Polyvinyl-Chloride (PVC) Externally Coated Galvanized Rigid Steel Conduit and Intermediate Metal Conduit, RN 1-1998, standard.

Available for immediate delivery through Global Engineering Documents, the RN 1 standard is used in commercial and residential construction applications. This standard covers the properties and dimensions of coatings and helps in selecting and obtaining the proper coating for added corrosion protection in various applications.

Coatings included in the standard include continuous PVC exterior coatings, corrosion-resistant interior coatings, the galvanized steel conduit, galvanized steel intermediate metal conduit, threaded couplings and elbows to which they may be applied. It also describes plastic coatings applied to galvanized rigid steel conduit and galvanized steel intermediate metal conduit.

"RN 1 defines the minimum requirements for PVC coated conduit, which should be included in specifications written for this product. Inclusion of these standards in the specification assures the user of receiving the highest quality product available and will prevent substitution of lower quality material, which may not perform satisfactorily in corrosive environments," states Chuck Hardek, vice president of sales and marketing for Perma-Cote Industries. "RN 1 standards also assure interchangeability of product between the various brands in order to allow the user the option to switch suppliers without the need for special adapters or transition devices."
