    ASTM D3498

    Abstract

    This specification covers minimum performance standards and test requirements for gap-filling construction adhesives for field-gluing plywood to lumber framing for floor systems. The adhesive shall conform to the strength and durability properties prescribed. The different methods for specimen's preparation are presented in details. The shear strength, gap-filling effect on strength, and durability shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers minimum performance standards and test requirements for gap-filling construction adhesives for bonding plywood to lumber framing, particularly floor joists, at the construction site.

    1.2 This specification provides a basis for ensuring the quality of the adhesives and is not intended as an application specification.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this specification: 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.
