This document establishes a classification of wood adhesives for non-structural applications for exterior use without protection by an adequate surface coating.
This document specifies performance requirements and durability classes of such adhesives for use in an environment corresponding to the defined conditions.
The performance requirements of this document apply to the adhesive only, not to wooden products.
This document is primarily intended to assess the performance of adhesives. The requirements apply to the type testing of the adhesives. Production control activities are outside the scope of this document.
NOTE For the assessment of end product bonding quality, see Annex A.
