This document specifies a test method for measuring the force required to pull a single heel pin out of a
heel. This test method is used both to measure the heel pin holding strength of heel materials by using
a standard heel pin and a method of insertion, and to assess the heel nailing of commercial production.
This test method is applicable to testing plastics and wooden heels for women’s footwear. Heels
composed of layers of fibreboard or leather and low plastics heels for men’s footwear cannot be tested
by this method.

For research, development and quality certification purposes, some simply formulated 1- and 2-part "reference test adhesives" have been developed and, from the most important and most often applied, some materials have been selected as "reference test materials". This technical report offers for each of these reference test adhesives and reference test materials some information and specify some properties. CEN/TC 193/WG 5 takes care for a continuous updating of these data sheets.
