The seal between the connector and the structure wall will be made by pure compression of the resilient material against the wall of the structure. The seal between the connector and the pipe will be made by pure compression of the resilient material against the outside diameter of the pipe. The connector shall be the only component to affect the seal between the pipe and structure.
The connector shall be extruded and vulcanized from materials whose physical/chemical properties meet or exceed the physical/chemical resistant properties outlined in ASTM C-923.
