This standard BS 1203:2001 Hot-setting phenolic and aminoplastic wood adhesives. Classification and test method is classified in these ICS categories:
- 83.180 Adhesives
This British Standard specifies the technical requirements and methods of test for adhesives based on synthetic resins of the phenolic and aminoplastic types, with or without additional hardeners and extenders. The standard does not in any way apply to adhesives based on resins of types other than phenolic or aminoplastic and should not be quoted for these other materials.
The properties of the adhesives are determined by tests made on beechwood joints with thin gluelines. The failing forces obtained on the test pieces prescribed cannot be converted into terms of stress values (i.e. pascals) for structural calculations.
Resins sometimes require a hardener to be added by the user. In this situation, this standard covers the combination of resin and hardener. If the resin and hardener are sold separately, neither by itself can be said to conform to any of the specified durability classes.
