    ASTM D3535

    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method rates the performance of the adhesive in laminated wood as measured by resistance to creep under static load.

    5.2 This test method will normally be used in conjunction with Specification D2559.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers adhesives suitable for the bonding of wood, including treated wood, into structural laminated wood products for general construction, for marine use, or for other uses where a high-strength general construction, creep-resistant, waterproof adhesive bond is required.

    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.
