ASTM WK38985

    Revision of D4680 - 98(2011) Standard Test Method for Creep and Time to Failure of Adhesives in Static Shear by Compression Loading (Wood-to-Wood)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4680 - 98(2011)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D14.30 | Committee D14 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Work item proposes to revise the current D4680 test jig detailed in Adjunct #ADJD4680 to reduce manufacturing costs and provide specimen loading without dissassembly/reassembly of the jig for each sample. The goal is to provide a reasonable and cost-effective alternative to the D3535 specimen when testing with high temperature and humidity environments.
