Cleavage Strength of Metal-to-Metal Adhesive Bonds ASTM D1062
The ASTM D1062 test method includes the evaluation of adhesive bonds’ comparative cleavage qualities when evaluated on standard form metal specimens under defined preparation and testing conditions. The performance of specimens evaluated using this method is expressed in SI units.
The ASTM D1062 test method covers the determination of the comparative cleavage properties of adhesive bonds and will examine loading configurations that measure adhesive resistance to cleavage. Metal-metal, metal-composite, and composite-composite couplings can all be subjected to the test. It can also be used to compare adhesives with other metallic materials that have been treated in any way.
This test method is frequently utilized in the aerospace and defense industries, and it has proven to be very accurate in determining and predicting the environmental endurance of adherend surface preparations.
In order to comply with ASTM D1062, the specimen must be positioned correctly in the testing machine’s grips. When the tensile load is applied or the crosshead speed of the testing machine is set to idle, the load must be weighed precisely. The maximum load sustained by the specimen in pounds at failure is then recorded, together with the percentage of cohesion, adhesion, and contact failures.
As per the ASTM D1062, the specimens are nominally 25 mm wide and 200 mm long, with an adherend thickness of approximately 2 mm. The bonded joints can be manufactured individually or as sections of a bonded panel.
Cleavage strength is defined as the breaking load, given in pounds per inch, according to ASTM D1062. The result is represented to three significant figures if at all practicable.
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.
