Gastite’s FlashShield™ CSST passes LC1027 performance standards

Gastite, a leading manufacturer of Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST), confirmed its claim that its FlashShield is currently the only product on the market that provides best-in-class lightning protection by meeting the new PMG LC 1027 performance standards for multi-layer, conductive, jacketed corrugated stainless steel tubing.

“The LC1027 testing evaluated the ability of Gastite’s CSST jacket material to prevent melt-through of the inner stainless steel piping when exposed to simulated lightning voltage/currents that may exist within a residential structure,” said Craig Barry, Vice President of Marketing for Gastite. “To date FlashShield is the only CSST to meet all proposed performance requirements.”

Gastite commissioned this independent third-party test as part of its ongoing commitment to provide a best-in-class “CSST product for our customers as well as theirs.”

LC1027 testing was performed by an independent lightning test laboratory accredited by the International Accreditation Service (IAS). All samples of FlashShield CSST were subjected to and passed a minimum 96-hour corrosion test as well as lightning simulation testing.

According to Barry, “We had a third-party independent laboratory test the new FlashShield CSST system to make certain it gives contractors the highest level of lightning protection available in flexible gas piping systems.” To learn more about the FlashShield CSST system and view a demonstration video at,
