1.1 This specification establishes requirements for sulfone plastic insert fittings and copper crimp rings for four sizes ( 3/ 8 , 1/ 2 , and 3/ 4 and 1) of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing that meet the requirements for Specification F876 and polyethylene of raised temperature (PE-RT) tubing that meet the requirements of Specifications F2623 and F2769. These fittings are intended for use in 100 psi (690 kPa) cold- and hot-water distribution systems operating at temperatures up to and including 180 °F (82 °C). Included are the requirements for material, molded part properties, performance, workmanship, dimensions, and markings to be used on the fittings and rings.

1.2  Units—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.
