Standard Specification for Adhesives for Field-Gluing Plywood to Lumber Framing for Floor Systems

Abstract

This specification covers minimum performance standards and test requirements for gap-filling construction adhesives for field-gluing plywood to lumber framing for floor systems. The adhesive shall conform to the strength and durability properties prescribed. The different methods for specimen's preparation are presented in details. The shear strength, gap-filling effect on strength, and durability shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers minimum performance standards and test requirements for gap-filling construction adhesives for bonding plywood to lumber framing, particularly floor joists, at the construction site.

1.2 This specification provides a basis for ensuring the quality of the adhesives and is not intended as an application specification.

1.3 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.

1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
