    Rationale

    ASTM C564 is used as both the material standard and product standard for rubber gaskets used the join hub and spigot cast iron soil pipes and fittings together. Table A.1 includes dimensional tolerances for the gaskets covered by C564. We have learned that this table has been withdrawn by the Rubber Manufacturers Association and the tolerances found in this table in C564 are changed and out of date. ASTM C564 and similar tolerance tables are found in the ASTM A1046, ASTM C1277, and ASTM C1540 standards for shielded couplings used to join cast iron soil pipes and fittings together. All of these standards need to be revised include the new tolerance requirements. .
