ASTM D3658 Torque Strength of Ultraviolet Light-Cured Glass/Metal Adhesive Joints
The ASTM D3658 test method allows for a fast evaluation of the strengths of glass/metal connections when the adhesive is cured by ultraviolet (UV) light. Torque-loading UV-bonded hexagonal metal blocks to glass plates are used in this test procedure.
The torque strength of ultraviolet light-cured glass or metal adhesive joints is determined using the ASTM D3685 test procedure. This test method can be used to compare torque strength-to-failure data for different bonded joint systems, whether or not they are radiation cured. This test procedure yields reasonably accurate results in terms of UV curing adhesives’ capacity to endure torsional shearing pressures. This test method can also be used to see how the environment affects torsional shear strength.
Manual assembly practices are also appropriate for UV curable adhesives. Because the glass/metal will not cure until it is exposed to light, users can make fine alignment modifications before joining.
Standard bonded specimens are produced, irradiated, loaded, and tested under defined conditions for the ASTM D3685 test process. The specimens are placed in the holding fixture, making sure that there is no lateral movement. Then, mechanically or with the aid of a constant drive loader, a torque is applied to the hex nut assembly at a rate of 0.5 rpm until failure occurs. The load at failure, as well as the nature and extent of the failure, are all noted.
UV bonded hexagonal metal blocks and glass plates are used as test specimens for the ASTM D3685 test procedure.
As per the ASTM D3685, all failure loads are expressed in lbf·in. (or N·m).
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
