ASTM A1045-10(R2021) pdf free download.Standard Specification for Flexible Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Gaskets Used in Connection of Vitreous China Plumbing Fixtures to Sanitary Drainage Systems
1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers material and performance requirements for plasticized PVC compression gaskets used in the connection of residential and commercial vitreous china plumbing fixtures to 2-, 3-, and 4-in. sanitary drain lines. These type gaskets are inserted into and compress against the inside diameter of the sewer pipe, closet or urinal flange while attaching to the vitreous china plumbing fixture with a flexible adhesive. The result is a gas- and watertight seal. 1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.4 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions—For definitions of terms in this specification, refer to Terminology A644. 3.2 Definitions ofTerms Specific to This Standard: 3.2.1 closet flange, n—a pipe fitting that secures the water closet to the floor and the sanitary drain line. 3.2.2 urinal, n—a plumbing fixture that receives only liquid body waste and, on demand, conveys the waste through a trap seal into a gravity drainage system. 3.2.3 urinal flange, n—a pipe fitting that secures a rear outlet wall-mounted urinal to the sanitary drain line. 3.2.4 vitreous china plumbing fixture, n—urinal, water closet, or both. 3.2.5 water closet, n—a plumbing fixture having a water- containing receptor which receives liquid and solid body waste and upon actuation conveys the waste through an exposed integral trap seal into a gravity drainage system.
4. Materials and Manufacture
4.1 These type gaskets are manufactured principally from virgin injection-grade plasticized PVC compounds. Recycled materials may be used in this product in accordance with Section 5. 4.2 Adhesives used in the attachment of vitreous china plumbing fixture gaskets shall be compatible with the compo- nent gasket material and the sanitary drain system. Butyl rubber-based adhesives are known to have such characteristics.
5. Gasket Requirements
5.1 Physical and mechanical properties of plasticized PVC gaskets for the connection of vitreous china plumbing fixtures to the sanitary drainage system shall comply with Specification D5926.5.2 Gaskets shall be tested in accordance with Section 9 on pipe samples complying with applicable industry standards of maximum and minimum dimensions. It shall be permissible to machine pipe samples to attain maximum or minimum dimensions, or both. 5.3 The gasket assembly when tested in accordance with Section 9 shall not leak. 5.4 The gasket shall accommodate vitreous china plumbing fixtures and flanges conforming to applicable industry stan- dards.
9. Test Method for Assembled Gaskets
9.1 Test Apparatus—The apparatus used to conduct this test shall be designed according to the applicable outlet dimensions of the vitreous china plumbing fixture. See Fig. 1 for example. The test apparatus shall be constructed of clear acrylic with a polished finish. 9.2 Significance and Use—This test method is useful in determining the ability of the gasket assembly to provide a permanent seal against water, sewer, sewer gas, and the like in vitreous china plumbing fixture to sanitary drain line connec- tions. 9.3 Hazards—This is a pressurized hydrostatic test and under no circumstances shall water be substituted with air. Care should be taken in expelling all air prior to pressurizing the test assembly. Wear eye protection during pressure tests and strictly adhere to safety precautions at all times. 9.4 Procedure – Hydrostatic Joint Tightness Test—Wipe the surface of the test apparatus with denatured alcohol. Apply the gasket assembly to the test apparatus. Insert the test apparatus assembly into the test pipe, providing an adequate space between the test apparatus and the flange to prohibit compres- sion of the gasket between the test apparatus and flange. Securely tighten the test apparatus to the flange, fill the assembly with water expelling all air, pressurize to 4.3 psi for a period of 15 min. Any leakage shall result in failure. Refer to Fig. 2.
