This document specifies test methods for the determination of the suitability of two component epoxy and two component polyurethane adhesives for glued-in steel rods in glued laminated timber (GLT) and glued solid timber (GST) according to EN 14080, cross laminated timber (CLT) according to EN 16351 and laminated veneer lumber (LVL) according to EN 14374.
NOTE 1 The English term "glued-in rods" has been chosen as the established term instead of "bonded-in rods".
It specifies performance requirements and the determination of characteristic bond strength values for such adhesives for the prefabrication under factory or factory-like conditions of joints between load-bearing timber products and steel rods only. This document does not cover the performance of adhesives for on-site gluing (except for factory-like conditions).
NOTE 2 Factory like conditions provide shelter from direct weathering and dirt, prevent undue movement of the joints during curing of the adhesive and provide temperature and relative humidity conditions and control as in factory production environment.
This document also covers glued-in rods in surface treated wood. It does not cover glued-in rods in modified and stabilized wood with considerably reduced swelling and shrinkage properties, e.g. acetylated wood, heat treated wood, polymer impregnated wood and preservative treated wood.
The joints are intended for load-bearing timber structures in service classes 1 and 2 according to EN 1995-1-1 which are loaded predominantly static or quasi static according to EN 1990 and EN 1991-1-1. The joints are intended for load-bearing timber structures which are not subjected to a prolonged exposure to temperatures over 60 °C.
A design procedure for glued-in rods in glued structural timber products is given in the informative Annex A.
NOTE 3 Several provisions of this document can apply to in situ repair and upgrading of existing timber structures including (cracked/fissured) solid wood beams. For adhesives for glued-in rods used in on-site repair or applications with solid timber additional provisions apply, e.g. related to rheology and site temperature conditions. Such provisions are not part of this document.

This document specifies test methods and requirements for two-component epoxy and polyurethane adhesives for on-site repair of cracks in timber structures made of strength graded structural timber with rectangular cross-section, structural finger-jointed timber, glued solid timber and glued laminated timber made of softwood species by injection of the repair adhesive with glue line thicknesses up to 8 mm. The adhesive can also be used to rehabilitate cracks in the area of joints made by nails, screws, dowel-type fasteners and dowels with threads. The adhesive can also be used to fill gaps between the faces of structural components. This document addresses exclusively adhesives which fulfil the requirements according to Clause 8.
NOTE There is no sufficient experience with adhesives which do not fulfil the requirements in 8.4.4.
This document also covers the repair of surface treated wood. It does not cover the repair of preservative treated wood, modified and stabilized wood with considerably reduced swelling and shrinkage properties, e.g. acetylated wood, heat treated wood and polymer impregnated wood.
The adhesive is intended for the repair of load bearing timber structures not subjected to temperatures more than 60 °C over a longer time in service classes 1 and 2 according to EN 1995-1-1 which are loaded predominantly static or non-fatigue quasi static, see EN 1990 and EN 1991-1-1. A verification of quality and bond line integrity of the on-site repair bonding is given in an informative Annex A.
