Field Test for Stone Tile Strength | ASTM Standardization News
A new standard developed by ASTM International’s dimension stone committee (C18) provides the first quantitative field test for determining the shear bond strength of stone tile.
According to ASTM member Donato Pompo, the new standard will allow for meaningful on-site assessment of shear bond strength. It can be applied to newly adhered stone installations for quality assurance testing or to existing stone installations to verify bond strength. Previously, the only standard shear bond strength test available was a laboratory test.
