They are intended for nominal pipe sizes 2 in. (50 mm) through 12 in. (300 mm). Full-encirclement repair clamps shall be manufactured completely from stainless-steel or a combination of stainlesssteel band and cast ductile-iron lug, along with stainless-steel or low-alloy carbon steel bolts and nuts, depending on service requirements and the purchaser's documents.
