4.1 In selecting or developing a resilient flooring or carpet adhesive, it is critical to have knowledge regarding how well the adhesive will bond to the desired substrate. Shear loading simulates a common failure mode.
4.2 The test method determines the failure shear load for the test adhesive and specific substrate combination.View Less
1.1 This test method describes a procedure to measure shear strength development for adhesives used to bond resilient flooring and carpet adhesives to selected substrates.
1.2 This test method provides a quantitative means of measuring and recording shear strength of the adhesive when it is applied to the desired substrate.
1.3 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.
1.4 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.
1.5 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.
