This standard describes the selection, and installation requirements for field-applied, mechanical, internal pipe joint seal assemblies for water service. Internal joint sealing is a method of in-situ pipe joint rehabilitation that is used to correct leaking pipe joints; to strengthen weak joints or localized wall pitting and other structural defects at joints; to seal leaks at cracks; prevent exfiltration or infiltration, or used in concert with other non-joint specific methods of pipe rehabilitation (cement–mortar lining, cured-in-place pipe lining, etc.).

This is the first edition of this standard.
