Preparation and testing of bulk specimens of adhesives GPG17

This Guide describes methods for preparing bulk specimens of adhesives and methods for testing these for the determination of mechanical property data needed for design. Emphasis is given in both specimen preparation and testing to the acquisition of accurate data. The Guide is applicable to one-part adhesives that cure by heating and to two-part systems that must be mixed prior to curing. It is not suitable for adhesives whose cure requires the evaporation of solvents or the liberation of gas.
