Standard Specification for Elastomeric Seals for Joining Concrete Structures
|Publication Date:||1 February 2019|
|ICS Code (Seals, glands):||21.140|
1.1 This specification covers the physical property requirements of elastomeric seals (gaskets) used to seal the joints of precast concrete structures conforming to Specifications C14, C14M, C118, C118M, C361, C361M, C443, C443M, C505, or C505M used in gravity and low head pressure applications.
1.2 Requirements are given for natural or synthetic rubber gaskets, or a combination of both.
1.3 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.
1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification. 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 appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

This specification covers the physical property requirements of elastomeric seals (gaskets) used to seal the joints of precast concrete structures used in gravity and low head pressure applications. The seals shall be classified as: Class A; Class B; Class C; Class D; and Class E. All gaskets shall be extruded or molded in such a manner that any cross-section will be dense, homogeneous, and free of porosity, blisters, pitting, or other imperfections. The gaskets shall be fabricated from an elastomeric material meeting the appropriate classification physical property requirements. The following test methods shall be performed to conform to the specified requirements: tensile strength and elongation; hardness; compression set; accelerated aging; water absorption; ozone resistance; oil immersion testing; and splice strength classification.View Less
