    Abstract

    This specification covers metal insert fittings and copper crimp rings for use with SDR9 cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing. All performance tests shall be performed on assemblies of fittings, crimp rings, and PEX tubing. Fittings and crimp rings shall meet the material and dimensional requirements prescribed. The sealing surfaces of the insert shall be smooth and free of foreign material. Fitting walls shall be free of cracks, holes, blisters, voids, foreign inclusions, or other defects that are visible to the unaided eye and affect the wall integrity. Insert fittings shall be joined to PEX tubing by the compression of a copper crimp ring around the outer circumference of the tubing, forcing the tubing material into annular spaces formed by ribs on the fitting.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers metal insert fittings and copper crimp rings for use with cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in 3/8 , 1/2 , 5/8 , 3/4 , 1, 1 1/4 , 11/2 , and 2 in. nominal diameters that meet the requirements for Specification F876 and for use with polyethylene of raised temperature (PE-RT) tubing in 3/8 , 1/2 , 5/8 , 3/4 and 1 in. and 1 1/4 in. nominal diameters that meet the requirements of Specifications F2623 and F2769. These fittings are intended for use in 100 psi (689.5 kPa) cold- and hot-water distribution systems operating at temperatures up to, and including, 180°F (82°C). The requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions, and markings to be used on the fittings and rings are also included.

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

    1.3 Compliance with this specification requires that these fittings be tested and certified to Specification F877 when used with PEX tubing and Specification F2769 when used with PE-RT tubing.

    1.4 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.
