European Norm

25.220.20   Surface treatment | 83.180   Adhesives


This European Standard specifies the usual procedures for the preparation of component surfaces prior to bonding for either laboratory evaluation or the process of construction. This European Standard is applicable to metal and plastic surfaces that are commonly encountered. These comprise the following metal and plastic families - the latter including filled versions and suitable paints : METALS: aluminium, chromium, copper, magnesium, nickel, steel (mild), steel (stainless), tin, titanium, zinc. PAINTS: cataphoretic, polyalkyd, polyester, polyepoxide, polyurethane. PLASTICS: thermoplastic: Acrylonitrile/butadiene/styrene plastic (ABS plastic), Polyacetal plastic, Polyacrylic plastic, Polyamide plastic (PA plastic), Poly( butylene terephthalate) (PBT), Polycarbonate plastic (PC plastic), Polyester plastic, Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyethersulfone (PES), Polyethylene plastic (PE plastic), Polyimide, Poly(methyl methacrylate) plastic (PMMA plastic), Poly(phenylene oxide) (PPO), Polypropylene plastic, Polystyrene plastic (PS plastic), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Poly(vinyl chloride) plastic (PVC plastic). thermoset: Allylphthalate plastic, Aminoplastic, Cellulose esters, Epoxy plastic, Polyester plastic, Phenolic plastic, Polyurethane (PUR).
