Fastener and Adhesive Standards Adhesives and Fasteners standards address the test methods, requirements, and use of a variety of adhesives and fasteners. SAE International (SAE) and ASTM International (ASTM) have developed many fasteners and adhesives standards that are applicable to the automotive and aerospace industries.

Fastener standards address the dimensions, testing, and use of fastener materials, washers, screw threads, bolts, nuts, and more. These fastener standards allow hardware product manufacturers and end users to examine and assess fasteners to measure their strength and quality towards safe utilization.

Adhesive standards are helpful in the evaluation and testing of adhesives. These standards address the specifications, test methods, and practices for adhesives and their components.

Fastener Standards

Fastener Standards address the dimensions, testing, and use of screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, flanges, studs, and so forth. With ubiquitous usage in many fields of industry, fasteners come in a similarly wide variety, differing even within the range of a single design in everything from size to material, coating, inspection criteria, etc. Thus, standardization serves its role to assist interchangeability between different parts and manufacturers, as well as the reliability of those parts.

Standards developing organization such as the Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI), SAE International (SAE), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and others have produced the below voluntary consensus standards.

Automotive and Aerospace Adhesives

Automotive and Aerospace Adhesives

Automotive and aerospace adhesives standards address the recommended practices, material specifications, application, test methods, and use of adhesive materials. SAE International (SAE) and ASTM International (ASTM) have developed a variety of automotive and aerospace adhesives standards that are used to provide the proper guidance that is needed to increase the strength, quality, and safety of automotive and aerospace components. Adhesives standards are useful for a multitude of applications, including the sealing of integral fuel tanks, crew compartments and passenger areas, access doors, and more.
