D 14
American Society for Testing and Materials

1.1 This specification covers adhesives suitable for the bonding of wood, including treated wood, into structural laminated wood products for general construction, for marine use, or for other uses where a high-strength, waterproof adhesive bond is required.

1.2 The requirements of the adhesive are based on the performance of the adhesive in laminated wood as measured by:

1.2.1 Resistance to shear by compression loading,

1.2.2 Resistance to delamination during accelerated exposure to wetting and drying, and

1.2.3 Resistance to deformation under static load.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.>
