This document specifies requirements and associated test methods for rubber materials used in gas installations, gas equipment and gas appliances in contact with 1st, 2nd and 3rd family combustible gases as classified in EN 437:2018, additionally LPG, bio methane and bio LPG, in the same quality, are covered. It also establishes a classification based on temperature range and hardness. This document is applicable to materials from which homogeneous seals and homogeneous or reinforced diaphragms are manufactured.
Since the dimensions and shape of the components differ from those of standard test pieces taken from sheet material as used for type testing of the rubber materials according to this document, tolerances have been made in the requirements specified by Annex A for the components with respect to those specified for standard test pieces.
The range of operating temperatures covered by this document is –40 °C to +150 °C.
For applications with potential condensation, this document is not applicable for silicon rubber, e.g. above 200 hPa (200 mbar) nominal pressure or at temperatures below 0 °C with 3rd family gases.

This European Standard specifies requirements for elastomeric materials used in seals for supply pipes and fittings, ancillaries and valves at operating temperatures in general from - 5 °C up to 50 °C and in special cases from - 15 °C up to 50 °C, for the following:
General applications (see Table 4, type G)
a)    gaseous fuel (manufactured, natural and liquefied petroleum gas [LPG] in gaseous phase);
b)    hydrocarbon fluids with aromatic content up to 30 % (V/V), including LPG in liquid phase.
Special applications (see Table 4, type H)
Materials suitable for carrying gaseous fuels containing gas condensates and hydrocarbon fluids of unrestricted aromatic content.
General requirements for finished joint seals are also given; any additional requirements called for by the particular application are specified in the relevant product standards taking into account that the performance of pipe joints is a function of the seal material properties, seal geometry and pipe joint design. This European Standard should be used where appropriate with product standards which specify performance requirements for joints.
This European Standard is applicable to joint seals for all pipeline materials including iron, steel, copper and plastics.
In the case of composite seals requirements in 4.2.8 and 4.2.9 apply only when the materials used for any elastomeric parts come into contact with gaseous fuel or hydrocarbon fluid.
Elongation at break, tensile strength, compression set and stress relaxation requirements for materials of hardness categories 80 and 90 apply only when they constitute that part of the seal which participates directly in the sealing function or in long term stability.
This standard is not applicable to the following:
a)    seals made from cellular materials;
b)    seals with enclosed voids as part of their design;
c)    seals with requirements of resistance to flame or to thermal stress;
d)    seals which contain splices joining pre-vulcanised profile ends.

This standard specifies requirements of materials used for vulcanized rubber seals in:
-   Cold water (T ≤ 50 °C);
-   Cold water (T ≤ 50 °C) and intermittently hot water (T ≤ 95 °C);
-   Cold water (T ≤ 50 °C) and continuously hot water (T ≤ 110 °C).
The different designations of seals specified are defined according to their type, application and requirements (see Table 1).
This standard defines requirements for seals, partially defining the properties of the vulcanized rubber material as a performance indicator of the finished seal. Any additional requirements called for by the particular application are specified in the relevant product standards taking into account that the performance of pipe joints is a function of the seal material properties, seal geometry, pipe system material and pipe joint design. This standard should be used where appropriate with product standards which specify performance requirements for joints.
It is applicable to elastomeric components of composite or non composite seals.
In case of composite seals for materials of hardness ranges from 55 IRHD to 95 IRHD the requirements for elongation at break, compression set and stress relaxation apply only when the material is participating in the sealing function, or the long term stability of the seal.
Joint seals made with an enclosed void as part of their design are included in the scope of this European Standard.

This standard specifies requirements and associated test methods for vulcanized rubber materials used in gas appliances and equipment in contact with 1st, 2nd and 3rd family combustible gases. It also establishes a classification based on temperature range and hardness. This standard is applicable to materials from which are manufactured homogeneous seals and homogeneous or reinforced diaphragms.  The normal range of operating temperatures covered by this standard is 0 øC to + 60 øC. Tests are also included for applications using diaphragms within the range - 20 øC to + 80 øC and seals within the range - 20 øC to + 150 øC. For temperatures outside these ranges the user should contact the manufacturer regarding the suitability of the rubber material.  This standard includes two normative annexes for the verification that a component (finished product) was produced from a previously type tested material complying with requirements of this standard as declared by the appliance or equipment manufacturer or supplier of the component.  This standard is not applicable to silicone rubber used either above 200 mbar nominal pressure or at temperatures below 0 øC with 3rd family gases as there is possibility of condensation. This standard is also not applicable to seals and diaphragms for devices in gas transmission systems nor in such equipment used in 1st and 2nd family gas distribution systems.

This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for unsintered polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) tapes (hereafter referred to as PTFE tapes) which are suitable for sealing threaded metallic joints as specified in ISO 7-1. The PTFE tapes are typically for use in installations for 1st family gases (town gas), 2nd family gases (natural gas) and 3rd family gases (liquefied petroleum gases (LPG)) up to 5 bar and up to 7 bar for hot water of heating systems (Class A) as well as up to 0,2 bar in gas appliances and their auxiliary equipment (Class B). The maximum working pressure covered in this European Standard is 20 bar which is relevant to LPG storage (Class C). The temperature range is limited to - 20 øC to 125 øC.  NOTE:  For applications outside the scope of this Standard (e.g. compressed gases) the purchaser should consult the manufacturer.  Anaerobic jointing compounds are covered by EN 751-1, non-hardening sealing materials in form of - e.g. jointing compound paste - are covered by EN 751-2.
