The purpose of this standard is to establish a common color code and identification system for visual warnings to accompany the written identification of materials in piping systems. The use of this standard will promote greater safety and will lessen the chances of error, confusion, or inaction in times of emergency by providing uniform color code to quickly warn personnel of outstanding hazards inherent in the materials involved. However, this standard does not define the manner or conditions under which these materials may be used safely.
