GASKET SELECTION GUIDE
Lede utilizes the finest gasket materials available in our products. Over the past 50 year great advanced have been made in synthetic elastomer technologies, allowing us to
offer a full range of synthetic rubber gasket materials for a wide variety of piping applications. Lede gaskets are engineered and designed to meet and exceed standards
such as ASTM D2000, AWWA C606, NSF61 and IAPMO. Our own stringent internal laboratory testing confirms this. Our continual research, development and testing are designed to advance the elastomer field and to develop new and better solutions for our ever changing industry.

and or the compound of the gasket. The color coding identifies the gasket grade and or compound. Always verify that the gasket selected is correct for the intended service.
Service temperature is controlled by factors including the gasket compound, fluid medium (air, water, oils, etc.), and continuity (continuous or intermitient) of service.
Under no circumstances should gaskets be exposed to temperatures ablow their individual rankings. For additional information or specific applications contact Lede for recommendations.
