Maximum Coating Thickness – Victaulic Grooved Fittings
The coating thickness on Victaulic grooved fittings should not exceed 10 mils. Specifically the gasket seating surface and the entire groove should have coating thickness limited to 10 mils. Exceeding the maximum thickness on either Victaulic grooved fittings or coupling surfaces will decrease the performance capabilities of the pipe joints.
