ABS DWV Pipe and Fittings (cont.) Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ASTM D 2661-73) pipe is made from rubber-based resins and used primarily for drain, waste and vent systems. The Uniform Plumbing Code limits ABS to residential buildings and below grade applications in commercial and public buildings. Solvent-weld ABS is easier to install than cast iron or copper drainage pipe. ABS does not rot, rust, corrode or collect waste and resists mechanical damage, even at low temperatures.
