ASTM D2557 1998 Edition, May 10, 1998
Standard Test Method for Tensile-Shear Strength of Adhesives in the Subzero Temperature Range from −267.8 to −55 degrees C (−450 to −67 degrees F)
Includes all amendments and changes through Editorial Change 1, October 2010
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This test method covers the determination of the comparative shear strength of adhesives for bonding metals when tested on a standard specimen and under specified conditions of preparation and testing at extreme subzero temperatures.
This test method is applicable to the temperature range from -267.8 to -55°C (-450 to -67°F).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
