ASTM D4501 Block Shear Strength Testing Equipment for Adhesive Bonds Between Rigid Substrates

ASTM D4501 describes a procedure and fixture used to determine shear strengths of adhesives used to bond materials with moduli higher than the modulus of the adhesive. The size and shape of the specimens are variable within the physical restraints of the fixture.

ASTM D4501 test method provides an estimate of the shear strength of an adhesive on various machinable and nonmachinable substrate materials. ASTM D4501 is particularly applicable for testing bonds between ceramic, glass, magnet moldings, and plastic parts with one flat face where machining would be difficult or impractical.
