Description / Abstract:

This test method is designed to evaluate adhesives for finger jointing lumber used in the manufacture of structural glued laminated timber. It tests the tensile strength of joints under the following treatments; dry with no treatment, wet after one vacuum-pressure soak treatment, and wet after cyclic boil-dry treatment.

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.
