4.5.1 Durability of internal pressure: Resistance to stress corrosion
Fittings manufactured from copper and copper-tin-zinc alloys (CuSnZnPb) shall be considered to be
resistant to stress corrosion according to EN 12502-2 and copper-zinc-silicon alloys containing ≥ 2 % Si
are also considered to be resistant.
Fittings manufactured from CuZn-alloys shall be considered to be resistant to stress corrosion when the
product has a hardness HBW 2,5/62,5 ≤ 110 measured according to EN ISO 6506-1 or a hardness
10
HV ≤ 134 measured according to EN ISO 6507-1.

Fittings manufactured from copper alloys with a zinc content of 10 % or greater not mentioned above
shall be tested and assessed according to 5.4.1, and shall show no evidence of cracking.
4.5.2 Durability of tightness
4.5.2.1 Resistance to dezincification
The resistance to dezincification of alloy fittings can be obtained by the correct material selection and
processing of that material.
Alloys containing 15 % or less zinc provide a good resistance to dezincification and don't need to be
tested.
Representative material samples, prior to machining, shall be tested. When tested according to 5.4.2.1,
the mean and maximum depth of dezincification in any direction shall be expressed in µm and shall meet
the acceptance criteria listed below for resistance to dezincification:
— for grade A: maximum 200 µm;
— for grade B: mean not to exceed 200 µm and maximum not to exceed 400 µm.
If any of the test pieces do not meet the criteria for the chosen grade, a second lot of test samples from
the same batch shall be selected and the test repeated. If any of the second lot of test pieces fails, then the
batch represented shall be deemed not to conform to the requirements of this document.
4.5.2.2 Resistance to pressure cycling
When tested according to the method in 5.4.2.2 fittings shall show no signs of leakage.
4.5.3 Durability of resistance to high temperature (for heating networks)

When assessed according to the method specified in 5.7 the thread shall be in accordance with
EN 1254-20:2021, 4.4.
4.9 Other adapter ends (not defined in EN 1254-20:2021)

During type testing, the method in 5.9 shall be used to establish the master reference thermogram for the
chosen sealing material.
The results of subsequent tests of the sealing material, carried out according to the method in 5.9, shall
be compared to the master reference thermogram to establish that the material is the same; any
differences shall be investigated. Results shall be retained for future comparison.
The identity relates to the elastomeric material and is independent of the fitting type, size or pattern.
4.12 Tube / pipe abutment
This requirement does not apply to threaded ends.
Fitting ends are usually manufactured with an abutment to limit tube or pipe insertion and to retain a
loose supporting sleeve, if used.
Fittings may be produced for special purposes, particularly useful for repairs, where the fitting ends do
not incorporate abutments, allowing the fitting to slide along the tube or pipe.
The dimensions of the abutment shall be such that it will stop the smallest possible tube according to
EN 1057:2006+A1:2010, Table 4 or pipe. The abutment shall also satisfy the minimum bore requirement
as stated in 4.10.
4.13 Alignment of the fitting ends
When tested according to the method in 5.10, the alignment of the fitting ends with reference to the
specified axis shall be within ± 2°.

4.2 Tightness
4.2.1 Integrity of fabricated fitting bodies or having an 'as cast' microstructure
This requirement only applies to fitting bodies with an 'as cast' microstructure (excluding continuously
cast materials) or fabricated by welding or brazing.
When tested according to the method in 5.3.1 fitting bodies shall show no visual indication of leakage.
4.2.2 Leak tightness under internal hydrostatic pressure
Fittings assessed as indicated in 4.1 are considered to be leak tight under internal hydrostatic pressure.
4.2.3 Resistance to pull-out
When tested according to the method in 5.3.2 the joint assemblies shall withstand the pull-out force
without being separated and shall show no signs of leakage when subjected to the subsequent leak
tightness under internal hydrostatic pressure test as described in 5.2.
4.2.4 Leak tightness under vibration
This requirement only applies for jointing with metallic tubes.
When tested according to the method in 5.3.3 fittings shall show no signs of leakage.
4.2.5 Leak tightness under static flexural force
This requirement only applies for jointing with metallic tubes and is not applicable on threaded ends.
When tested according to the method in 5.3.4 fittings shall show no signs of leakage or permanent

When tested according to the method in 5.3.7 fittings shall show no signs of leakage.
4.3 Resistance to high temperature (for heating networks)
The main aspect for the resistance to high temperature depends on the elastomeric sealing element.
Therefore the elastomer shall have the appropriate characteristics as specified in EN 681-1. The
elastomeric sealing elements shall conform to the requirements of EN 681-1:1996, Table 3 for continuous
hot water supply up to 110 °C except for Isoprene-Isobutylene Copolymer (IIR) where a volume change
in water up to and including 15 % is permitted.
4.4 Release of dangerous substances
National regulations on dangerous substances may require verification and declaration on release, and
sometimes content, when construction products covered by this standard are placed on those markets.
In the absence of European harmonized test methods, verification and declaration on release/content
should be done taking into account national provisions in the place of use.
