4 Material
4.1 Raw material

The raw material shall be PVC-U to which are added those additives that are needed to facilitate the

manufacture of components conforming to the requirements of this document.

When calculated on the basis of a known formulation or in case of dispute or not known formulation,

determined in accordance with EN 1905 the PVC content shall be at least 80 % by mass for profiles and 85 %

by mass for injection-moulded fittings.
4.2 Utilisation of non virgin material

Requirements for the utilisation of non-virgin materials are given in Annex A (normative).

5 General characteristics of profiles - Appearance

When viewed without magnification the internal and external surfaces of gutters shall be smooth, clean and

free from scoring, cavities, and other surface defects. The ends of gutters shall be cut cleanly and square to

the axis of the profile.
6 Geometrical characteristics of profiles
6.1 Width

Gutters shall be designated by their upper opening width (size) (See examples of cross section areas in

Annex E). The manufacturer shall declare the usable area of the cross-section of the gutter at its designed top

opening width for the calculation of flow capacity. This usable area shall be either marked on the gutter or

given in commercial documents.
6.2 Length

The commercial length of a gutter shall have a positive tolerance when measured at 20 °C.

7 Physical and mechanical characteristics of profiles

The requirements for the physical and mechanical characteristics and the conditions for the respective test

methods shall conform to those given in Table 1.

NOTE Any conflicting parameters and requirements given in the test method standards referred to do not apply here.
