Amarillo Fast-Grip Gaskets

Rubber Types

The Amarillo Fast-Grip gasket has the same cross section profile as AMERICAN’s Fastite gasket, so it can be used in any 4"-30" standard Fastite pipe socket. The gasket rubber is standard Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), which meets all the material requirements of ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11. SBR rubber gaskets are ANSI/NSF Standard 61 certified for contact with potable water.

Gaskets made of SBR are standard with all joint types. Consult AMERICAN for information or recommendations on gaskets made of special types of rubber, for applications involving air or liquid temperatures in excess of 150° F, or for chemical, hydrocarbon or other special service applications, and for installations in contaminated soils where permeation through gaskets might be a concern.
