Rubber Ring Seals

Elastomeric seals are dual hardness EPDM rubber to AS1646. All seal configurations have been tested to AS/NZS 2280 for Elastomeric Seal Joints. The tests are carried out in the configuration of maximum design radial gap between the components to be joined. Tests include hydrostatic pressure and joint infiltration at maximum deflection angle, hydrostatic pressure and a joint infiltration test under a shear force load.

Polymeric Coatings

Thermal Bonded Polymeric Coatings (Standard Option)

Crevet® ductile fittings are supplied coated with a thermal bonded polymeric coating. Fittings can be supplied with Polyamide (thermoplastic coating) or other thermoplastic type coatings for Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE – thermosetting coating).

Both coating types provided the necessary protection, allowing product to be installed without the need for sleeving. Thermoplastic and Thermosetting coatings are applied and tested to the requirements of AS4158.

Coating Thickness as per AS4158

Coating Material Minimum film thickness – Internal surface (µm) Minimum film thickness – External surface (µm)
Polyamide (Thermoplastic) 250 200
FBE (Thermosetting) 350 300

Note: 1 µm = 1/1000th of a millimetre.

Cement Lining (Non-standard option)

Cement lining is applied to the requirements of AS/NZS 2280 to give a dense even surface concentric with the internal diameter of the fitting. Cement used is manufactured to AS3972. Fittings come standard with general purpose (GP) and can be supplied with Gb or SR type cement upon requires. All cement lined fittings are required to be seal coated.

Cement Mortar Lining Thicknesses

Nominal Diameter DN (mm) Lining Thickness (mm)
Nominal Minimum
80-300 6 9
375 – 750 9 7

 

Bitumen Coatings

Bitumen coating is applied to both cement lined and unlined fittings. Bitumen coatings conforms with the requirements of AS/NZS 3750.4.
