This European standard specifies the characteristics and performances of gypsum based adhesives which are composed of gypsum plasters defined in EN 13279-1 and of additives. These adhesives are used for fixing to walls and partitions, gypsum plasterboard thermal/acoustic insulation composite panels according to EN 13950, gypsum plasterboard linings according to EN 520 and other suitable products as reprocessed boards according to EN 14190 and cornices according to EN 14209. They assist in the construction of systems which provide thermal and acoustic performance.
It covers the following performance characteristics: reaction to fire, fire resistance and bond strength to be measured according to the corresponding European test methods.
It provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this standard.
This standard covers also additional technical characteristics that are of importance for the use and acceptance of the product by the construction Industry and the reference tests for these characteristics.
