ASME NM.3.2-2020

Nonmetallic Materials, Part 2 - Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Material Specifications

The NM.3 Standard provides specifications for nonmetallic materials (except wood, nonfibrous glass, and concrete) and, in conformance with the requirements of the individual construction standards, methodologies, design values, limits, and cautions on the use of materials. Similar to the function that Section II of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) serves for metallic materials, ASME NM.3 provides a central location for material specifications, allowable stress values and physical properties of non-metallic materials.  This Standard is divided into three parts:  ASME NM.3.1 Part 1 – Thermoplastic Material Specifications ASME NM.3.2 Part 2 – Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Material Specifications ASME NM.3.3 Part 3 – Properties   ASME NM.3.2 contains reinforced thermoset plastic material specifications identical to or similar to those published by ASTM and other recognized national or international organizations.
