ASTM WK45134

    Revision of C1440 - 08(2013)e1 Standard Specification for Thermoplastic Elastomeric (TPE) Gasket Materials for Drain, Waste, and Vent (DWV), Sewer, Sanitary and Storm Plumbing Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1440 - 08(2013)e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: A04.75 | Committee A04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Standard Operating Temperature of 130 degrees F. is underrated per the Santoprene manufacturer specification. A proposed increase of 22% from its current value is adequate. It is also only 13% above the maximum operating temperature of standard PVC. In addition, the majority of the gasket testing is performed at this temperature of 158 degrees F. (Compression Set, Heat Aging, Water Absorption)
