Tylox™ SOCL Gasket
Available from Hamilton Kent
Profile Gaskets for Single Offset Joints on Concrete Pipes and¬ Manholes
The Tylox® “SOCL” profile gasket builds upon the success of the Tylox® SuperSeal™ gasket to offer similar features at a more economical price.
Benefits of the Tylox® SOCL Profile Gaskets include:
Fool-proof installation - The correct orientation of the gasket on the spigot is assured by the utiliza¬tion of the colored stripe on the nose of the gasket. Simply install with the colored stripe facing out from, and located towards the end of, the spigot.
Easier equalization - The incorporation of the unique “lamelle” profile design allows for reduced gasket stretch requirements when compared to a conventional profile gasket. Reduced stretch means less equalization effort and a reduced po¬tential for bell breakage due to unequal stresses in the rubber gasket.
No gasket “roll” or “twist” - Another benefit of the unique “lamelle” design is the significant decrease in insertion force when compared to a conven¬tional profile gasket. The reduction in homing force, coupled with the wide, flat base, virtually eliminates the potential for gasket roll and twist. Manual coupling of up to 24” pipe is possible.
Tylox® SOCL gaskets are manufactured from a variety of synthetic rubber compounds, to meet the material requirements of ASTM C361, ASTM C443, ASTM C1619, California Greenbook and CSA A257.
