    This specification covers the standard material criteria and test method for compression gaskets used in joining hub and spigot cast iron soil pipe and fittings for sanitary drain, waste, vent, and storm piping applications. The gaskets shall be made of a compound containing a thermoset elastomer and shall consist of one or more sealing ring(s) that compress to provide an airtight and watertight seal. Compression gaskets shall have an integral flange to prevent the gasket from rolling into the hub during installation and shall be designed to permit expansion, contraction, and deflection of assembled piping. The gaskets shall be restrained and subjected to hydrostatic pressure and the joint assembly performance shall be evaluated using the restrained hydrostatic joint testing apparatus wherein a water pressure gauge is used to ensure the accuracy of the test pressures.

    1. Scope

    1.1 Several different types of compression gaskets are available for use in connection with hub and spigot cast iron soil pipe and fittings. The purpose of this test method is to establish material criteria and test procedures for compression gaskets used in joining hub and spigot cast iron soil pipe and fittings for sanitary drain, waste, vent, and storm drain piping applications in accordance with the general needs of producers, distributors, and users.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
