18"Lead free." When used with respect to solders and flux, the 
19term refers to solders and flux containing not more than 0.2%
20lead and, when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes

1[and], pipe fittings, plumbing fittings and fixtures, the term 
2refers to the wetted surfaces of pipes [and], pipe fittings,
3plumbing fittings and fixtures containing not more than [8%] a 
4weighted average of 0.25% lead. The weighted average lead 
5content of a pipe, pipe fitting, plumbing fitting or fixture 
6shall be calculated by using the following formula:

7(1) For each wetted component, the percentage of lead in
8the component shall be multiplied by the ratio of the wetted
9surface area of that component to the total wetted surface
10area of the entire product to arrive at the weighted
11percentage of lead of the component.

12(2) The weighted percentage of lead of each wetted
13component shall be added together and the sum of these
14weighted percentages shall constitute the weighted average
15lead content of the product.

16The lead content of material used to produce wetted components
17shall be used to determine compliance with 0.25% weighted
18average for lead. For lead content of material that is provided
19as a range, the maximum content of the range shall be used.
