1.1 The purpose of this test is to measure quantitatively the laminate stability under controlled conditions, specifically in relation to the formation of bubbles in a laminate with heat exposure. 1.2 This test can be performed on laminates which have been exposed to weathering or as-manufactured samples to determine the amount of excess air dissolved in the interlayer. 1.3 To determine the stability of laminated glass when subjected to high heat environments. 1.4 Outlines a test method to be used on laminated glass with 2 or more layers of glass bonded by an interlayer. 1.5 Test method covers visual rating of tested specimens. 1.6 UnitsThe values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.7 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.

The bake and boil test methods described in this document have been used in the glass industry for laminated glass qualification of safety and quality control of laminated glass for decades. The tests have been documented and propagated by interlayer manufacturers, fabricators and specified, but have not been documented in an ASTM referenceable form. The approval of this test method resolves that issue and makes the test method more accessible to the users and general public for proper referencing and provides an avenue for consistency in testing and evaluation.
