1.1 This classification covers a means for specifying Multi-Layer Steel (MLS) and other Metal Layer Gaskets for Transportation Applications by application and construction. These structures are composed of one or more steel or metal layers of material, which may have coatings or embossments. Commercial materials designated as composite or enveloped gaskets are excluded from this classification and are covered by Classification F868 and Practice F336, respectively.
1.2 Since all of the properties that contribute to gasket performance are not included, use of this classification as a basis for selecting an MLS or Metal Layer gasket is limited.
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 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
