ASTM D1002

Standard Test Method for Apparent Shear Strength of Single Lap Joint Adhesively Bonded Metal Specimens by Tension Loading (Metal to Metal)

This test determines the shear strength of adhesives for metal-to-metal bonding surfaces.

The specimen is conditioned by bonding together two metal plates in a specific orientation and adhesion area as set forth by the standard.  They are then placed within the grips of the testing machine and pulled apart at a constant rate of extension.

Load at failure, shear strength at failure, and type of failure.

Equipment Used:
Test frame, tightening grips, and oven for curing.
