This European Standard specifies requirements for adhesives intended for use in the creation and general assembly of load-bearing, structural elements used in civil engineering works and the construction of buildings. Other than the exceptions stated, it embraces all combinations of bonded materials, used to create or repair load-bearing elements.
It covers individual adhesives and special purpose kits comprising various combinations of adhesive types and components.
It includes test methods and methods of assessment.
The performance requirements in this standard may not be applicable to highly specialised applications in extreme environmental conditions, e.g. cryogenic use, nor do they cover specialised circumstances such as accidental impact, e.g. due to traffic or ice, or earthquake loading where specific performance requirements will apply.
The intended use is for internal and external construction elements and those cladding and covering elements (excluding ceramic tiles) specifically required, by regulatory authorities, to provide protection from fire in identified building zones, including escape routes.
This European Standard does not cover:
-   Prefabricated, bonded structural components;
-   Concrete bonded either to itself or steel or a material based on carbon fibre;
-   Wood, when bonded to itself to form a timber based, laminated beam [of the type known as a ‘Glulam’ beam] intended for use as a major structural, load bearing element;
-   Thermoplastics [e.g. polyethylene, polypropylene, polyamide and fluorinated polymers in general] unless they have been specifically prepared [usually through a specialised oxidative process] for bonded assembly on site;
-   Co-axial metallic assemblies comprising fasteners- threaded and otherwise, pipes and tubes;
-   Glass assemblies in structural glazing applications made using silicone adhesives;
-   Those structural elements that are permanently immersed in water.

EN 16566 defines coating materials designed to cover all backgrounds and substrates in traditional materials or compliant with the standards in force, whether new or existing, bare or coated, absorbent or non-absorbent, smooth or rough, in order to prepare them to receive a paint or related system, or a bonded cover, whether specific or not. More generally intended to improve the surface appearance, they can also: - not be over-coated; - create a textured appearance or not; - be treated/coloured or not (pigments, wax, etc.). Exterior fillers are not intended as top coat. Interior coating materials with grain size over 1 mm are not covered by this European Standard. Fillers specifically intended for wooden and metal substrates are not covered by this European Standard. This European Standard complies with the general system for classification of water-borne coating materials and coating systems for interior walls and ceilings described in EN 13300. This European Standard complies with the general system for the description of coating materials and coating systems for exterior masonry and concrete described in EN 1062-1. The essential function of fillers covered by this European Standard is therefore a decorative function. Therefore, these fillers are considered here as preparatory and/or decorative fillers, of smooth or textured appearance.

The essential function of fillers is therefore a decorative function. Therefore, these fillers are considered here as preparatory and/or decorative fillers, of smooth or textured appearance.
NOTE   Nothing prevents preparatory surface filler from being coated with a paint system comprising protective functions.
However, they are not suitable for truing of backgrounds, without specifications regarding the verticality, angularity or flatness under a 2-m straight edge, or thickness. Their application never requires, to ensure they bond correctly, the prior application of a rigid reinforcement such as a lathwork or wire mesh, or a spatter-dash or bagging or scoring of the surface between two coats. They may nevertheless incorporate a flexible reinforcement (strip of natural or synthetic fabric) for example along joints between different or same materials, in order to limit visible cracking.
Under these conditions, this European Standard does not concern products covered by the following standards: EN 998 1, EN 998 2, EN 15824, EN 13279 1, EN 13963, EN 12860, EN 13813, EN ISO 11600.

This European Standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining shear behaviour. It is applicable to thermal insulating products.
NOTE   The tests described in this standard do not determine pure shear behaviour, but measure the effects of applying two opposite parallel forces to the major faces of the test specimen. The test is however called shear in this text by convention. The application of a force tangentially to the major surface of the test specimen is considered to represent more closely the stresses imposed upon thermal insulation products in many building applications, particularly walls, than other methods of measuring shear performance e.g. bending tests.

This European Standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining the water vapour transmission rate, water vapour permeance and water vapour permeability of test specimens in the steady state under different sets of specified test conditions. It is applicable to thermal insulating products.
It is intended to be used for homogeneous materials and for products which may contain integral skins or facings of different material(s).
A material is considered to be homogeneous, with regard to mass distribution, if its density is approximately the same throughout, i.e. if the measured density values are close to its mean density.
This test method is not normally used for determining the water vapour transmission properties of single, separate vapour barriers (of high diffusion resistance), such as prefabricated films, foils, membranes or sheets, due to the long duration of the test. For products with a vapour retarder or barrier with a water vapour diffusion equivalent air layer thickness sd  1 000 m (see 3.6) other test methods e.g. IR-detection can be used for measuring the single separate vapour retarder or barrier, provided that the results obtained are in the same range as the values measured in accordance with this standard.
The water vapour transmission rate and permeance values are specific to the test specimen (i.e. the product) thickness tested. For homogeneous products, the water vapour permeability is a property of the material.

It is applicable to thermal insulating products and can be used to determine the compressive stress in compressive creep tests and for applications in which insulation products are only exposed to short-term loads.
The method can be used for quality control purposes. It may also be employed to obtain reference values from which design values can be calculated using safety factors.
