Structural Adhesives - Determination of the pot life (working life) of multi-component adhesives

inactive, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 February 2010
Status: inactive
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Adhesives): 83.180
scope:

This European Standard specifies means of determining in appropriate ways the variable property known alternatively as useable working life and pot life.

This European Standard specifies five methods for the determination of the time available for use, each of which is related to specific circumstances; particularly important being the rheology of the adhesive concerned and its rate of reaction.

This European Standard can also be used for assessing non-structural adhesives.

NOTE EN 302-7 could also be used for the determination of working life of adhesives for load-bearing timber structures.

Because of the different properties of the individual multi-component systems, like rheology or viscosity, respectively velocity of hardening, etc., not all methods can be applied to each multi-component system with the same suitability.

SAFETY STATEMENT- Persons using this document should be familiar with the normal laboratory practice, if applicable. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to ensure compliance with any regulatory conditions.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATEMENT - It is understood that some of the material permitted in this standard may have negative environmental impact. As technological advantages lead to acceptable alternatives for these materials, they will be eliminated from this standard to the extent possible.

At the end of the test, the user of the standard should take care to carry out an appropriate disposal of the wastes, according to local regulation.
