The F-565 Rieber C-900 seal is a composite compression seal consisting of:
A flexible rubber element to seal effectively against spigot and socket.
A treated metal insert which holds the seal firmly in place.
The seal is integrated into the socket during pipe manufacture ensuring it is always in the correct position in the joint.
The seal is placed onto the socket forming tool and used to shape its own seal groove reducing irregularities and tolerances in the socket. The seal is equally effective under both positive and negative pipe pressure (vacuum).
Increased installation reliability and reduces risk of accidental seal displacement during pipe installation.
Product designed for use with pipe of PVC designed in conformity with AWWA C-900 standard.

Video Joint Assembly
The spigot and socket of the pipe should be checked for damage prior to jointing.
The pipe spigot should be chamfered with an angle of 15°, taking care to remove all burrs. Both spigot and socket including the sealing ring should be free from dirt and other foreign matter.
Lubricant should be applied evenly to the spigot end of the pipe.
Immediately after lubrication, the spigot should be brought into contact with the socket.
Both spigot and socket should correctly aligned and then slide the spigot into the socket, thus compressing the seal until the joint is fully made.
