This specification covers thermoplastic elastomeric (TPE) gasket materials for preformed elastomeric gaskets used in shielded and non-shielded mechanical couplings for gravity flow drain, waste, and vent (DWV), sewer, sanitary, and storm plumbing systems. Couplings include those that join similar and dissimilar piping sizes and materials. Gaskets shall be made of virgin thermoplastic elastomeric compound containing only clean reworked thermoplastic elastomer material. Gasket materials shall conform to specified values of the following physical requirements: hardness, elongation, tensile strength, heat aging, tear strength, water absorption, ozone resistance, compression set, oil immersion in IRM 903 oil, and stretch test for spliced gaskets.

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