Standard Test Method for Multiple-Cycle Accelerated Aging Test (Automatic Boil Test) for Exterior Wet Use Wood Adhesives
|Publication Date:||10 March 2000|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
This test method covers a procedure for testing the durability of wood adhesives that may be suitable for exterior (wet use) exposure conditions. The possible use of adhesives suitable for evaluation includes, but is not limited to those used for laminating large members, manufacturing plywood, or fabricating wood joints such as finger or scarf joints. This practice is not suitable for interior type glues.2,3
The test does not evaluate for any biological effects.
The test subjects specimens to a large number of alternate boil/dry cycles.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units in parentheses are provided for information only.
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.
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.
