    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the procedure for determining the shear strength of composite materials in the form of sheets, plates, and molded shapes in thicknesses from 1.27 to 12.7 mm (0.050 to 0.500 in.).

    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.
