1.1 This test method covers the determination of the core flatwise tension strength or the bond between core and facings of an assembled sandwich panel. The test consists of subjecting a sandwich construction to a tensile load normal to the plane of the sandwich, such load being transmitted to the sandwich through thick loading blocks bonded to the sandwich facings or directly to the core.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given may be approximate.
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.
