Standard Test Method for Sealability of Enveloped Gaskets
|Publication Date:||10 October 2000|
|ICS Code (Seals, glands):||21.140|
This test method covers the evaluation of the sealing properties
of enveloped gaskets for use with corrosion-resistant process
equipment.2 Enveloped gaskets are described as gaskets
having some corrosion-resistant covering over the internal area
normally exposed to the corrosive environment. The shield material
may be plastic (such as polytetrafluoroethyl
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 6.
2 This test method is to be used in place of Test Methods F37, which apply only to single-component gasket materials and are not applicable to envelope-style gaskets.
This fixture may also be used for other gasket materials or designs, with or without modification. Supporting data have been filed at ASTM International Headquarters and may be obtained by requesting Research Report RR:F03-1000.
