This specification covers socket fusion tools for use in making socket fusion joints between polyethylene pipe or tubing and fittings as specified by certain specifications. It covers newly manufactured heater faces and used heater faces which have been recoated. Heater faces may be manufactured from aluminum, steel, or other suitable heat conducting material. The manufacture of these socket fusion tools shall be in accordance with good commercial practice so as to produce socket fusion tools meeting the requirements specified. Heater faces shall have surfaces free of cracks, voids, foreign inclusions, or injurious defects.
