EN 124-6:2015 (E) 10 4.3.2 Carbon black requirements for UV resistant PE and PP Black UV resistant PE, PP shall contain at least 2,0 % by weight of carbon black when determined by ISO 6964. The carbon black shall have an average (primary) particle size of 10 nm to 25 nm. NOTE The percentage content and particle sizes for carbon black are appropriate to EN 12201–1. 4.3.3 Titanium dioxide requirements for UV resistant PVC-U UV resistant PVC-U should contain at least 2 % by weight of rutile titanium dioxide. 4.4 Metallic fixing The material used for any metallic fixing shall be resistant to corrosion. Corrosion resistance shall be ensured either by e.g. hot dip galvanizing of steel (see EN 124-3:2015, 4.2), the use of stainless steel (see ISO 3506-1 and ISO 3506-2, EN 124-3:2015, 4.3) or copper alloys (see EN 12164:2011, Table 2). 5 Requirements 5.1 Design and performance requirements Manhole tops, gully tops and gratings made of materials according to 4.1 shall comply with the relevant design, performance and testing requirements in accordance with EN 124-1 as listed in Table 3.
