|Publication Date:||15 April 2020|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
These test methods provide a basic procedure for evaluating the withdrawal and lateral resistance of fasteners installed in wood and wood-based materials. Spikes are included as nails in this standard.
The tests also provide a basis for determining comparable performance of different types and sizes of fasteners installed in wood and wood-based materials.
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.
