Standard Specification for Adhesives for Field-Gluing Wood Structural Panels (Plywood or Oriented Strand Board) to Wood Based Floor System Framing
|Publication Date:||1 February 2018|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
1.1 This specification covers minimum performance standards and test requirements for gap-filling construction adhesives for bonding wood structural panels consisting of plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) to wood based floor system framing, particularly dimension lumber or wood I-joists, at the construction site.
1.2 This specification provides a basis for ensuring the quality of the adhesives and is not intended as an application specification.
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 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this specification: 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.
