This International Standard specifies methods for sampling adhesives and related products, in order to obtain uniform
samples of convenient size which are adequately representative of the product being sampled. The sample or
samples so obtained are suitable for examination and preparation prior to testing.
The methods are applicable to products which require the addition and mixing in of catalysts or hardeners prior to
their application, by sampling each component separately. The methods are not applicable, however, to sampling
from a stream of adhesive (in this case the samples can be prepared in accordance with ISO 8213).
This International Standard does not apply to animal glues.
