Adhesives for load bearing timber structures other than phenolic and aminoplastic - Test methods - Part 3: Creep deformation test at cyclic climate conditions with specimens loaded in bending shear
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
This European standard specifies a method for determining the creep deformation of bonded specimens loaded in bending shear. It is applicable to adhesives used in load-bearing timber structures.
It is suitable for the following applications:
a) for assessing the compliance of adhesives to !EN 15425" Adhesives, One component polyurethane, for load bearing timber structures - Classification and performance requirements;
b) for assessing the suitability and quality of adhesives for load-bearing timber structures.
This test is intended primarily to obtain performance data for the classification of adhesives for load bearing timber structures according to their suitability for use in defined climatic environments. This method is not intended to provide numerical design data and does not necessarily represent the performance of the bonded member in service. It is not applicable for assessing the suitability of adhesives for the manufacture of woodbased panels
