ISO 22632:2019 Adhesives – Test methods for adhesives for floor and wall coverings – Shear test.
This document specifies a test method to measure the adhesion ola resilient or textile floor covering or wall covering bonded to a given substrate under shear forces. The term “wall covering” does not include any type of wallpaper.

flexible resilient or textile floor covering or wall covering
adhesive for coverings
adhesive which is intended to produce firm and durable bonds between coverings (11) and various substrates
4 Principle
The adhesion is determined by measuring the shear strength under specified conditions before and after storing the bonds at 23 °C/50 °C tinder specified conditions.
5 Apparatus and materials
5.1 Notched trowel (for the shape of the notch, see Figurc1), with dimensions ci, b and c specified by the adhesive manufacturer.
5.3 Heating chamber, ventilated and adjustable to a temperature between 20°C and 200 °C according to Iso 9142.
5.4 Tensile testing machine, conforming to ISO 7500-1, class 1.
5.5 Primer, if applicabic.
5.6 Test covering, five test pieces for each conditioning sequence of dimensions 60 mm x 50 mm,
the long side, running in the machine direction where this can be identified, and shall be taken at least
10 mm from the edge.
5.7 Substrate materials.
Use either fibre cement or plywood as the substrate.ISO 22632 pdf download.
