Identifying adhesives made easy through PNS ASTM D4800:2018

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopted the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D4800:2018 Standard Guide for Classifying and Specifying Adhesives as a Philippine National Standard (PNS). PNS ASTM D4800:2018 was approved for adoption upon the recommendation of the Bureau of Philippine Standards Technical Committee on Adhesives and Allied Products (BPS/TC 51).

Published by ASTM in 1994 and reapproved in 2011, DTI-BPS adopted the standard in June 2018. PNS ASTM D4800:2018 is a guide that provides a classification system for tabulating the properties of adhesives that are suitable for holding parts or assemblies together. The use of this guide also provides information necessary for the development of standard specifications for adhesives. The classification system will enable consumers to easily identify the right adhesives to use with various materials and substrates.

The DTI-BPS is the National Standards Body of the Philippines. It is the country’s member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

The PNS ASTM D4800:2018 may be secured for a minimal fee from the Standards Data Center at (02) 791.3127 or 507.7307 and through This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
