Fastener and Adhesive Standards home
Adhesives standards from SAE International (SAE) are primarily concerned with the sealing and joining of automotive and aerospace materials. These standards also address the specifications and recommended practices for sealing and adhesive processes. One example of this is the sealing of a windshield on a car or plane.
Adhesive standards from ASTM International (ASTM) define the necessary practices, test methods, guides, specifications, and terminology for adhesive and sealant materials. These standards are useful for automotive and aerospace applications. Adhesive standards also help identify adhesive bond or joint mechanical properties which include strength, creep, fracture, and fatigue.
