Over deze norm
This European Standard establishes a classification for phenolic and aminoplastic polycondensation adhesives according to their suitability for use for load-bearing timber structures in defined climatic exposure conditions, and specifies performance requirements for such adhesives for the manufacture of load-bearing timber structures only. The performance requirements of this standard apply to the adhesive only, not to the structure. This standard does not primarily cover the performance of adhesives for the production of wood-based panels. This standard is primarily intended for the use of adhesive manufacturers and for the use in timber structures bonded with adhesives, to assess or control the quality of adhesives. This standard only specifies the performance of an adhesive for use in an environment corresponding to the defined conditions. Such an adhesive meeting the requirements of this standard for its type is adequate for use in a loadbearing structure, provided that the bonding process has been carried out according to an appropriate product standard.
