This specification covers stainless steel clamps for securing SDR9 cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing to metal insert and plastic insert fittings. All performance tests shall be performed on assemblies of fittings, clamps and PEX tubing. Clamps shall meet the material and dimensional requirements prescribed. The surfaces of the clamps shall be smooth and free of foreign material. Clamps shall be free of cracks, holes, corrosion, voids, foreign inclusions, or other defects that are visible to the unaided eye that have potential to affect the clamp integrity. Insert fittings shall be joined to PEX tubing by deforming and locking a stainless steel clamp around the outer circumference of the tubing, forcing the tubing material into annular spaces formed by the ribs on the fitting. The clamping procedure shall be as follows: slide the clamp onto the tubing, insert the ribbed end of the fitting into the end of the tubing until the tubing contacts the shoulder of the fitting or tube stop.

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