Historical (view previous versions of standard)
1.1 This specification establishes minimum requirements for adhesives used for the installation of tufted or woven broadloom carpet, within a climate controlled structure, when adhered directly, and permanently, to a structurally sound and recommended substrate.
1.2 This specification will provide the means to determine adhesive bonding variation as a result of different carpet backing systems and their usage classifications based on the traffic conditions they are subjected to.
1.3 This specification is not applicable to specialty adhesives such as those necessary for PVC and Non-PVC backed carpet tile and broadloom where the backing would be considered homogenous in nature.
1.4 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.
