PIPA publishes new Industry Guideline POP020

PIPA’s new Industry Guideline POP020 provides insight into the principles of electrofusion (EF) welding and instruction on the identification and assessment of fractographic features resulting from electrofusion weld quality testing.  Electrofusion weld test are typically destructive tests, where an applied stress is used to fracture the joint or components. Evidence of a satisfactory weld is determined by assessing the modes of fracture. Fractographic features include gross ductile tearing (yielding), mirco-ductility, and brittle lack of fusion and voids.
