Tylox® FT Series Connector

Cast-in, push-fit rubber connectors for concrete structures... flexible enough to meet your most rigid standards


Designed to replace mortared connections and engineered to accommodate differential settlement, the polymer construction of the Tylox® FT profile allows for soil-tight/water-tight connections in excess of ASTM C923 requirements (13 psig water-tight sealing in straight alignment and 10 psig water-tight sealing at 7 degree axial deflection) between precast concrete structures and PVC pipes.

Providing a soil-tight/water-tight joint, Tylox® FT Series flexible connectors save you operating time and money by:

  •  Reducing the potential for environmental hazards and clean-up due to ex-filtration
  •  Reducing the chances for ground-water contamination due to ex-filtration
  •  Reducing “clean-outs” of soil ingress due to infiltration
  •  Reducing down-stream, waste-water processing, capacity requirements due to infiltration

Size Selection

Tylox® FT connectors are available to suit PVC pipe diameters 6” thru 36”. For specific size selection please refer to the Selection Guide located in the literature .pdf file in the Download section of this web page.


Materials and Identification

Tylox™ FT connectors are manufactured from synthetic rubber compounds, to meet the material requirements of ASTM C923.

Connectors are available for “Standard” or “Oil-resistant” applications. Oil-resistant connectors will have an orange dot on the rubber molding.

Other materials and specifications may be available as custom order. Please consult your Hamilton Kent representative regarding your specific requirement.

Pressure Rating

Tylox® FT cast-in connectors are designed for soil-tight /water-tight connections in excess of ASTM C923 requirements - 13 psig water-tight sealing in straight alignment and 10 psig water-tight sealing at 7 degree axial deflection.


Tylox® FT cast-in connectors are not WHIMIS listed.

Tylox® FT cast-in connectors are made from crosslinked, polymeric rubber, which is not considered a health hazard. As with any rubber product, the connector may smolder or burn when exposed to a naked flame. Fire-fighters should wear self-contained, positive-pressure, or pressure-demand, breathing apparatus; and utilize water-spray, air-foam, dry chemical or CO2 type extinguishing media.

Storage and Handling

Proper care of the connector prior to installation will ensure maximum ease of installation and maximum sealing properties of the connector.

Connectors must not be stored near any electrical equipment that produces ozone.

All connectors must be protected from harmful substance such as dirt, mud, dust and grit.

All connectors, other than oil-resistant connectors, must be protected from contact with solvents and petroleum based greases and oils.
