|Publication Date:||10 May 1998|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
1.1 This test method is intended to complement Test Method D 1002 and D 3163 and extend its application to single-lap-shear adhesive joints employing plastic adherends. The test method is useful for generating comparative shear strength data for joints made from a number of plastics. It can also provide a means by which several plastics surface treatments can be compared.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
NOTE 1--A soft metric (conversion from English) companion to Test Method D 3164M has been developed - D 3164.
1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
