ASTM D3528 Tension Strength of Double Lap Shear Adhesive Joints

ASTM D3528 covers the determination of the tensile shear strengths of adhesives for bonding metals when tested in an essentially peel-free standard specimen that develops adhesive stress distribution representative of that developed in a typical low-peel production-type structural joint. The reproducibility of the strengths achieved are directly related to conformance with specified conditions of preparation and testing. ASTM D3528 is designed to produce shear property data for the process control and specification of adhesives. This test method may also be useful for research and development of adhesives.
