Cartridge adhesives are typically used at job sites in a wide variety of temperature ranges. These products may be exposed to cold temperatures, where one of the limiting application factors is whether the product can be extruded from the cartridge.
The test method quantitatively measures the force necessary to extrude a cartridge adhesive at a given temperature. This provides the formulator with results that can assist in formulation development and the end user with information for use in selecting a product for general usage.
By measuring (the ease of) extrusion from the cartridge, the test method can also be used as a quality control tool to measure the shelf life stability of a product.View Less
1.1 This test method covers a means of measuring the amount of force necessary to extrude an adhesive from a cartridge at a given temperature.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
