The test method ASTM D3164 is used to evaluate strength properties of adhesively bonded plastic lap-shear sandwich joints in shear by tension loading. A universal testing machine is used for this test. This test is used to compare adhesive treatments and analyse surface treatments of plastics.
Shear by Tension Loading ASTM D3164 is used to generate shear strength data for joints. This test is also applicable for comparing adhesive treatments or analysis of surface treatments of plastics. Shear is defined as a sliding failure that happens along a flat surface whereas tension loading is the capacity of a material to resist a pulling force. The objective of this test method is to supplement test methods ASTM D1002 and D3163 and apply their use to single-lap-shear adhesive joints with plastic adhesives. ASTM single-lap-joint shear testing covers ASTM D1002 that specifies the apparent shear strength for bonding metals. ASTM D3163 is used for rigid plastic adherends, and ASTM D5868 for fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) adherends.
Shear by tension loading ASTM D3164 is performed by using a universal testing machine. The test samples are placed in the grips of the testing machine and pulled to cause a fracture. The ends of the assembly are protected using grips. The grips must be aligned in such a way that the applied force is enforced via the centerline of the sample. The failure types are usually categorised as adhesive, cohesive, or a break in one of the substrates.
Shear by Tension Loading ASTM D3164 uses a lap shear sample of 25.4 mm (1 inch) with an overlap of 12.7 mm (0.5 inches). The suggested metal thickness is 1.62 mm (0.064 inches) with an overall length of 177.8 mm (7 inches) for the bonded sample. The advised thickness of the plastic insert is 0.354 mm (0.010 inches) or less.

ASTM D3164 is a standard test method for strength properties of adhesively bonded plastic lap-shear sandwich joints.
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.
