Standard dimension ratio (SDR) is a method of rating a pipe's durability against pressure. The standard dimension ratio describes the correlation between the pipe dimension and the thickness of the pipe wall.[1]

Common nominations are SDR11, SDR17 and SDR35. Pipes with a lower SDR can withstand higher pressures.
