Standard Specification for Adhesives for Bonded Structural Wood Products for Use Under Exterior Exposure Conditions
1.1 These test methods cover an accelerated means of measuring the resistance to delamination of structural laminated wood members intended for exterior service.
1.2 These test methods are not intended as substitutes or replacements for the more severe test of resistance to delamination in Specification .
1.3 Two test methods are included. Choice of test method depends on purpose of the test and available time to complete.
1.3.1 Test Method A—This test requires 3 days to complete and is a method for determining the suitability of adhesives and manufacturing techniques and equipment for production of joints adequate for exterior service.
1.3.2 Test Method B—This test requires approximately 121/2 h. (If excessive delamination occurs, the cycle is repeated). It is a quality-control type test for examining adhesive joint quality.
