The tensile shear and lap shear strength of a cured bond is a critical property and function of the adhesive, the bonded substrates, and the method used for bonding and curing. Manufacturers and end users of adhesives use this test method to investigate the tensile lap-shear properties of various rigid-to-rigid bonded assemblies, and indicate results such as the tensile shear and lap shear strength. The EN 1465 test method is suitable for use with the following range of materials: steel plate, plastics, and composites. These are primarily rigid test samples that have been prepared under the relevant guidelines within this test standard.
