This specification describes the properties of devices or assemblies suitable for use as flexible transition couplings for underground drainage and sewer piping systems. Couplings that may include bushings or inserts, and meet the requirements of this specification are suitable for joining plain end pipe or fittings. Couplings shall be permitted to have a center stop, the components shall be designed so that the elastomeric material is compressed to form a hydrostatic seal when the joint is assembled. Assemblies shall be tested in different areas and each component shall conform to specified physical and mechanical requirements, namely: hardness, tensile strength, elongation, heat aging, hardness, ozone resistance, water absorption, and chemical resistance for the elastomeric materials; tension band performance, torque resistance, free running torque for the stainless steel materials; and deflection sealing resistance, and shear loading resistance for the joint assemblies.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Plumbing Code®, International Private Sewage Disposal Code®, and International Residential Code®..
