Determination of compressive shear strength of wood adhesives at elevated temperatures
|Publication Date:||1 July 2019|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
This document specifies a test method for determining the comparative compression shear strength of adhesive bonds and solid wood at both ambient temperature and elevated temperature. The maximum load of the test pieces at ambient temperature and after exposure to a specific elevated temperature for a specified duration of time is evaluated. It is applicable to adhesives used in load bearing timber structures and to other wood adhesives.
This method is intended primarily to obtain performance data for the influence of elevated temperatures on the behaviour of adhesive bonds.
This method is not intended to provide data for structural design, and does not necessarily represent the performance of the bonded element in service.
