This Nordtest method is intended for the determination of the long-term shear strength which an adhesive is able to transmit.  


The method is, in particular, intended for the testing of adhesives used for securing PVC floor and wall coverings and also skirting board of plastic. The method can be used to compare the adhesive and cohesive properties of different adhesives. The test result will also depend on the properties of the covering and the baseplate.
