GD1037S20-17
GD1037S20-17 test fixture meets ASTM D1037 SEC20 requirements. ASTM D1037 Section 20 describes fixtures for testing the glue line shear for determining the adhesive bond strength of wood materials and products. The Block Shear Test Method was developed primarily for determining the adhesive bond strength of wood and similar materials. A compressive loading is applied to generate the shear stress, and two rectangular blocks of equal size, staggered 1/4", are bonded together. A guillotine-type loading is applied to shear off one block from the other. The GD1037-17 test fixture loading surface of the guillotine assembly is free to rotate relative to the remainder of the assembly, to accommodate any non-parallelism of the top and bottom surfaces of the bonded specimen.
