Significance and Use
This practice may be used to determine the performance, for suitable materials, in terms of any desired strength property of adhesive bonds. Test conditions of temperature and moisture only are here specified. The duration of exposure is dependent upon the nature of the adhesive and the type of specimens and will, therefore, be covered by material specifications.
1.1 This practice defines conditions for determining the performance of adhesive bonds when subjected to continuous exposure at specified conditions of moisture and temperature. The performance is expressed as a percentage based on the ratio of strength retained after exposure to the original strength.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
