ASTM C443M – Standard Specification for Joints for Concrete Pipe and Manholes, Using Rubber Gaskets (Metric)


This specification covers flexible leak-resistant joints for concrete pipe and precast manhole sections, using rubber gaskets for sealing the joints, where infiltration or exfiltration is a factor in the design.

The specification covers the design of joints and the requirements for rubber gaskets to be used therewith, for pipe conforming in all other respects to Specification C14M, Specification C76M, or Specification C507M and precast manhole section conforming in all other respects to Specification C478, provided that if there is conflict in permissible variations in dimensions, the requirements of this specification for joints shall govern.
