Standard Test Method for
Determining the Torque Strength of Ultraviolet (UV) light-cured Glass/Metal Adhesive Joints1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3658; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 This test method covers the simplistic comparison of
strengths of glass/metal joints when the adhesive is cured by
ultraviolet (UV) radiation and standard specimens are used and
tested under specified conditions of preparation, radiation, and
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded
as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided
for information purposes only.
1.3 This test method involves torque loading UV-bonded
hexagonal metal blocks to glass plates.
1.4 This test method may be used to obtain comparative
torque strength-to-failure data for other bonded joint systems,
radiation cured or not.
1.5 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.
