O112.10-08 (R2013) - Evaluation of Adhesives for Structural Wood Products (Limited Moisture Exposure)
W47.2-11 (R2015) - Certification of companies for fusion welding of aluminum
W47.1-09 (R2014) - Certification of companies for fusion welding of steel
O151-09 (R2014) - Canadian softwood plywood
O112.9-10 (R2014) - Evaluation of adhesives for structural wood products (exterior exposure)
CSA O112.10 specifies requirements for evaluating adhesives used to bond solid wood materials in structural wood products designed for exterior applications. It has been developed for untreated wood only, and the responsibility of the user to decide whether they wish to apply its requirements to treated wood. In addition, CSA O112.9 does not apply to adhesives intended for below-ground, ground-contact, or marine service applications.
This Standard was developed to complement CSA O112.9, which covers the evaluation of structural wood adhesives for exterior exposure. CSA O112.10 covers adhesives used in conditions of limited moisture exposure, and recognizes new levels of adhesive performance under additional service conditions to those covered in CSA O112.9. Although structural bond lines in wood are usually evaluated for use under wet service, this Standard is targeted at adhesives for use in wood products restricted to dry service conditions.
Unlike the other Standards in the CSA O112 Series, which rely on CSA O112.0 for their test procedures, this Standard is not restricted to a specific class of adhesives, and its test procedures are self-contained. It is also one of the few Standards that evaluate the performance of adhesives under thermal conditions
corresponding to those that would be encountered during a fire by a structural wood product used in a fire-protected wood assembly.
