EN 302-1

Adhesives for load-bearing timber structures - Test methods - Part 1: Determination of longitudinal tensile shear strength

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the shear strength of adhesive bonds in close contact glue line and thick glue line. A tension test is performed on a specimen. The maximum force is registered and the shear force is calculated in N/mm2

Machines suited for the EN 302-1 standard:
UCT Universal compression and tension testing machine
