|Publication Date:||1 January 1992|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
1.1 These test methods cover an accelerated means of measuring the resistance to delamination of structural laminated wood members intended for exterior service.
1.2 Two test methods are included. Choice of test method depends on purpose of the test and available time to complete.
1.2.1 Test Method A- This test requires 3 days to complete and is a method for determining the suitability of glues and manufacturing techniques and equipment for production of joints adequate for exterior service.
1.2.2 Test Method B- This test requires approximately 12 1/2 h. (If excessive delamination occurs, the cycle is repeated). It is a quality-control type test for examining glue joint quality.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
