ASTM D7519-11

Standard Test Method for Internal Bond Strength and Thickness Swell of Cellulosic-Based Fiber and Particle Panels After Repeated Wetting

1.1 These test methods provide a measure of the moisture resistance of cellulosic-based fiber and particle panels (for example, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), particleboard, and hardboard). Resistance to moisture changes is measured by dimensional and internal bond changes and does not refer to decay/mold resistance or other performance aspects.

1.2 These test methods do not address structural properties or performance following moisture exposure. Panels are subjected to repeated cycles of water submersion and oven drying. After three cycles, the test specimens are tested for thickness swelling (TS) and internal bond (IB) strength.    

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.
