BS EN 204:2016

Classification of thermoplastic wood adhesives for non-structural applications

Status : Current   Published : August 2016



This European Standard classifies thermoplastic resin based wood adhesives for non-structural applications into durability classes D1 to D4 based on the dry and wet strengths of bond-lines measured under specified conditions after various conditioning treatments.

For special applications, further tests that do not fall within the scope of this European standard can be applicable.

The adhesives specified in this European standard are suitable for the bonding of furniture and interior structures, panelling, doors, windows, stairs etc. made of wood or derived timber products.

This European Standard does not specify the temperature resistance of bond-lines.
