Significance and Use
By the nature of the way adhesives are used in two-ply wood construction, shear strength is an important performance criteria.
Shear strength measured by this test method is suitable for use in adhesive development, manufacturing quality control, and in materials-performance specifications.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the comparative shear strengths of adhesives when tested on a standard specimen and under specified conditions of preparation, conditioning, and testing. This test method is intended to be applied only to adhesives used in bonding wood to wood.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
