    Significance and Use

    5.1 Maintenance of adequate tensile adhesion of EIFS components to each other, and to the substrate are essential for long term performance of the system.

    5.2 The tensile-adhesion properties obtained by this test method are not purported to be representative of wind load or other structural and moisture related properties of the EIFS wall assembly. Tensile-adhesion properties using this test method are used as one of the factors in evaluating substrates and to compare adhesives.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method evaluates the tensile-adhesion performance of an exterior insulation and finish System (EIFS) or its individual components by two different procedures: Procedure A, Dry Conditioning and Testing of Specimens; and Procedure B, Wet Conditioning and Testing of Specimens.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
