1.1 This specification covers stainless steel clamps for use with five sizes of insert fittings that comply with F1807 or F2159, and cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) plastic tubing that complies with F876 and for use with polyethylene of raised temperature (PE-RT) tubing that complies with Specification F2769. These clamps are intended as an alternative to the copper-alloy crimp-rings of Specifications F1807 for use in 100 psi (689.5 kPa) cold- and hot-water distribution systems operating at temperatures up to and including 180°F (82°C). Included are requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions and marking of the stainless steel clamps; requirements for deforming the clamps; which apply to assemblies of PEX tubing and Specifications F1807 and F2159, insert fittings secured with deformed clamps per this specification.

1.2 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.

1.3  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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4  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.
