This specification covers performance levels for adhesives to be used in laminate joints in nonstructural lumber products. Such products include, but are not limited to, interior and exterior mouldings, window and door components or parts, and bonded lumber panels. This specification is to be used to evaluate adhesives as well as the adhesive bonds in nonstructural-glued-lumber products. Dry test, soak test, elevated temperature test, boil test, and vacuum pressure test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed. The precision and bias of exposure condition 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.
1.1 This specification covers performance levels for adhesives to be used in laminate joints in nonstructural lumber products. Such products include, but are not limited to, interior and exterior mouldings, window and door components or parts, and bonded lumber panels. This specification is to be used to evaluate adhesives as well as the adhesive bonds in nonstructural-glued-lumber products.
—This specification supersedes the laminate-joint portion of Specification D3110.
—See 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 for descriptions of a dry-use-nonstructural adhesive and a wet-use-nonstructural adhesive.
1.2 This specification applies to laminate-joint specimens made under both laboratory and field conditions. See Section 4 for limitations in using this specification to evaluate industrially manufactured laminate joint products.
1.3 The following safety caveat applies only to the apparatus and test methods portions, Sections 6, 7, 8, and 9 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.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard.
1.5 In this specification, laminate joint refers to both face and edge joints.
1.6 The following index is provided as a guide to the test methods in this specification:
Material and Preparation of Assemblies and Specimens
Exposure Conditions and Treatments
Testing, Calculation, and Reporting
—The conditioning needed for various stages in the preparation of the specimens and for the exposure tests are given in Sections 7, 8, and 9.
