This test method covers the standard material criteria and test method for compression gaskets used in joining hub and spigot cast iron soil pipe and fittings for sanitary drain, waste, vent, and storm piping applications. The gaskets shall be made of a compound containing a thermoset elastomer and shall consist of one or more sealing ring(s) that compress to provide an airtight and watertight seal. Compression gaskets shall have an integral flange to prevent the gasket from rolling into the hub during installation and shall be designed to permit expansion, contraction, and deflection of assembled piping. The gaskets shall be restrained and subjected to hydrostatic pressure and the joint assembly performance shall be evaluated using the restrained hydrostatic joint testing apparatus wherein a water pressure gauge is used to ensure the accuracy of the test pressures.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Plumbing Code®.
