4.1 This practice will provide a procedure for determining the stability of an adhesive to withstand five repeated cycles, or as otherwise specified, of freezing and thawing at a specific temperature.
4.2 This practice will allow the user to determine whether or not the adhesive can be appropriately applied after cycling of freezing and thawing.
4.3 This practice will identify any significant changes in the manufactured viscosity of the product after five cycles, or as otherwise specified, of freezing and thawing at a specific temperature.
4.4 This practice will help determine if the pH of adhesive has changed significantly due to the freezing and thawing cycles.View Less
